You might feel excited about the fact that you’re not going to have a cavity anymore once you receive a dental filling. However, if you are anything like many of our patients, your excitement might end there. Do you know what you can expect from fillings, what they will look like, and more? Or, do the details continue to escape you, leaving you feel a little uncomfortable about the idea of scheduling restorative care? We encourage you to leave your worries behind. Fillings are nothing to worry about (and we’re happy to help convince you of this with our FAQs session).
Frequently Asked Questions
Question: What type of dental fillings do you offer at your practice? Are they going to match my smile or do you usually use metal?
Answer: We offer tooth-colored fillings at our practice. They are made of composite and will match your smile beautifully.
Question: Why do you encourage patients to come in for a filling the second you find a cavity? Isn’t it possible to have cavities for years before doing anything about them?
Answer: We suggest this because tooth decay is not something that will form and then stop growing. It will progress and advance until it has caused serious destruction or an infection. Treating it immediately will prevent complications.
Question: What if my cavity is in a back tooth? Will you still let me receive a tooth-colored filling or does this mean I will need to have metal?
Answer: This is completely fine! You will not require metal. We can place a “white” dental filling in front and back teeth with wonderful results.
