It’s common for many people to develop cavities at some point in their lives. However, today’s composite fillings are virtually undetectable and look and feel just like your natural tooth. There are many reasons besides aesthetics to get a composite filling. Call us to find out more and determine if it’s suitable for your particular situation.
Determining if You Need Fillings
Your dentist usually discovers cavities while you’re at your routine checkup. Sometimes they’re also detected while you’re having a dental procedure. If your dentist finds cavities, they’ll likely show you where they exist in the x-rays or images and schedule an appointment to get them restored with a filling. At this time, the dentist will review the process and provide you with information, including the cost of the procedure. The cost of composite teeth fillings varies depending on the number of fillings, whether you have sedation or other factors.

Once you arrive at the dentist’s office, they’ll ensure the area is prepped and cleaned. They’ll remove decay and debris from your teeth and prepare you for composite fillings. The fillings are placed where the decay was removed and shaped to fit your tooth. Once the resin is in place, they cure it with a special light. Once the filling is hardened, you can eat and drink as you usually would. Your dentist will provide aftercare instructions on any precautions you need to take before resuming your everyday routine. It’s essential to take good care of your composite resin fillings and continue with a proper dental hygiene routine, including regular checkups and cleanings.
