What’s The Process Like For Having Tooth-Colored Fillings Placed?
Tooth-colored fillings can typically be completed in just one, convenient visit. After we’ve ensured that you’re appropriately numb, Dr. John will carefully remove decay from the tooth and thoroughly clean the area. Then, the composite resin material will be sculpted into place and polished so that it’s as closely matched to the natural tooth’s appearance as possible.
It is very normal for patients to experience some minor sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures directly after your new filling is placed. These sensations should dissipate quickly. In fact, because of the lack of metal, tooth-colored fillings are much less prone to temperature-related discomfort than their traditional counterparts! With the help of proper oral hygiene, good eating habits, and diligent checkups, this quality restorative solution should serve you well for 10-15 years or even longer.
