Many patients are now looking at dental solutions that can address and correct their teeth imperfections while maintaining the natural look and feel of their teeth. Here at Buchanan Dental Arts, we offer dental solutions that will address your problems with a damaged tooth without having to worry about its appearance. Allow us to help you with the use of our tooth colored fillings.

Fillings are used to restore a slightly decayed or damaged tooth to its normal function, shape and health. This procedures requires the removal of the decay and cleaning of the affected area before a filling material is used to fill in a cavity.

We use metal-free tooth colored fillings at our practice. These easily blend in with the color of your natural teeth.

Administration of Dental Fillings

Before the procedure starts, we will administer local anesthetic in order to numb the area around the tooth that needs the filling. Then, the decayed part will be removed using a dental drill. After ensuring all the decay is removed, the cavity is filled with the filling material and then polished.

After you undergo this procedure, you may experience a little sensitivity to heat and cold. will most likely happen after the anesthesia wears off and it should be gone after a short while. Most of the time, the sensitivity is only expected to last for a week to a maximum of two weeks. If you experience pain or sensitivity after two weeks, it’s important to let us know.

Getting fillings is an ideal way to save your teeth from further damage and to restore their natural health and function. But, you still have to make sure you maintain good oral hygiene so that you can preserve your restoration, and more importantly, protect your other teeth from getting damaged and decayed as well.
