Fillings

A filler is usually composite (the color of your teeth), and is used to repair a tooth that has been affected by decay, cracks, fractures, and other problems. The damaged tooth, or part of the tooth, will be removed and filled with a composite filling. There are various filling materials available for fillings. You can speak with one of our Encino Dentists about what would be the best option for restoring the health of your teeth. The most commonly used fillings are composite and silver. Because the composite fillings are the color of your teeth, they can be matched to the shade of your teeth and be more pleasing to the eye, and less visible.

Encino dental Fillings are not permanent and will require maintenance, such as replacing them. However, they will last for years before they need to be replaced, giving you a wonderful smile in the meantime.

Some of the reasons for needing fillings are:

  • Chipped teeth.
  • Closing space between two teeth.
  • Cracked or broken teeth.
  • Decayed teeth.
  • Worn teeth.

Fillings are usually done in one appointment. While your tooth is numb, your Encino dentist will remove as much decay as is needed, and that space will be thoroughly and carefully cleaned to prepare for the fillings. Then, the filling will be placed, shaped, and polished, restoring the tooth. 

You may experience some sensitivity, and that’s normal and will subside after your tooth adjusts to the new filling.
After your tooth is filled, you will be given some care instructions. Good oral hygiene, eating habits, and regular dental visits will help your Encino dental filling last longer.
