What to Expect When Getting a Dental Filling


Consultation and Examination:

Schedule an appointment with Dr. Taylor Lawrence Dietl at The Denture Place for a dental check-up. During the consultation, Dr. Dietl will examine your teeth and assess the need for a dental filling.


Anesthesia Administration (If Needed):

If the tooth requires filling and there is discomfort, we will administer local anesthesia to numb the area, ensuring a pain-free experience during the procedure.


Tooth Preparation:

Dr. Dietl will isolate the affected tooth and remove the decayed or damaged portion using specialized dental instruments. We will thoroughly clean the area to create a stable foundation for the filling.


Filling Placement:

The composite filling material is placed in layers and carefully shaped to match the natural contours of the tooth. Dr. Dietl will ensure the filling is securely bonded to the tooth, restoring its function and appearance.


Bite Check and Polishing:

After placing the filling, we will check your bite to ensure proper alignment. We will make any necessary adjustments to achieve a comfortable bite. The filling is polished to match the sheen of the surrounding teeth, providing a seamless finish.

Benefits to Make You Smile

Dental fillings maintain your teeth functionality:

Due to decay, the affected tooth loses its strength and structure, making it harder to eat or grind food evenly. In more severe cases, the decay can cause teeth to break or fall out. Dental fillings come to the rescue by filling in the cavities present and restoring teeth functionality. With this, your teeth can function normally without worry about breaking or falling out.

You don't have to worry about nerve irritation or infection:

When a tooth has significant decay and is left untreated, the decay could spread to the nerve. The nerve gets inflamed and causes severe pain when you eat or drink. Furthermore, it leads to infection, weakening gums, and tooth loss. However, when you opt for dental fillings, you don't have to worry about all that. Dr. Dietl will clean the decayed area and fill it in with a filling, which serves as a protective covering.

Dental filling is long-lasting protection:

The fillings protect the teeth from toxins and bacteria that could cause oral health problems. Depending on the location, it can last between 5 to 15 years or longer with good oral hygiene and care. This durability helps protect the teeth from future decay and other dental problems.

You'll love the cosmetic benefits:

Dental fillings effectively repair cavities; they also improve the teeth' visual appearance. Tooth fillings come in different materials, including tooth-colored composite resin, amalgam, porcelain, and gold. The tooth-colored composite fills cavities discretely and blends perfectly with the teeth' color, leaving them appearing natural and visually appealing.

Dental fillings are easy and relatively inexpensive:

When you compare the cost of filling cavities to the expense of a tooth extraction or a root canal, dental fillings win hands down. You can have a cavity filled within a day, and the cost will depend on the type, location, and size of the cavity. We offer affordable dental filling services, and our friendly team makes the process easy and comfortable.

Dental fillings have an easy process:

The first step in getting a dental filling is to diagnose and assess the area that needs treatment. Once we identify the affected area, we will numb the tooth and surrounding area with a local anesthetic. The next step is to remove the decayed portion of the tooth and clean the area, then insert the filling material into the cavity. Finally, we shape the filling and polish it to match the natural contours of the tooth.
