Test your know-how regarding this particular topic and you may feel a sudden burst of motivation that you’ve been needing.

Quiz Questions: True or False?

  1. True or False: When you receive a tooth-colored filling from our practice, it’s going to take much longer than a metal filling might.
  2. True or False: When you receive a white filling, it’s going to look bright white in comparison with the natural “white” of your tooth.
  3. True or False: A filling that is made of composite is going to cause just as much sensitivity to temperature as a metal one. It’s all about the fact that you had decay once.

Quiz Answers

  1. False. Nope. Dental fillings, whether you receive a tooth-colored filling or amalgam, will require a similar visit length. Remember, this is a very common and efficient treatment, so you can expect a convenient appointment.
  2. False. It’s going to blend in so beautifully that you won’t be able to see it. Why? Well, because we will customize the shade of the composite to match your tooth! Simple!
  3. False. Composite won’t cause this. Metal results in this type of sensitivity because it is a natural conductor of thermal energy!
