The Placement Process
Placing a filling only requires one short appointment at our practice! After Dr. White has provided local anesthesia and ensured you feel calm and comfortable, she’ll go to work removing the damaged portions of your tooth as precisely as possible. After cleaning out any remaining tissue, she’ll fill your tooth with the composite resin material and sculpt it so it matches the shape of your natural tooth. After hardening it with a special light, you’re done!
Tooth-colored fillings offer patients several great benefits, especially when compared to their traditional counterparts. These include:
- They allow our team to preserve more of your remaining healthy tooth structure.
- They don’t possess the same sensitivity to temperature changes as amalgam fillings, making them more comfortable overall.
- Their flexibility allows Dr. White to use them to correct minor cracks and fractures in addition to fillings, even if there’s no decay in the area.
- Their lack of metallic substances means that even patients with related allergies and sensitivities enjoy them!
