Smile Dental Clinics - Phoenix, AZ

Fillings

A composite filling is used to repair a tooth affected by cracks, fractures, decay or other issues that can cause the tooth to lose strength. During the procedure, the decayed or affected portion of the tooth is removed and replaced with a composite filling. Because these types of fillings, as opposed to older, metal fillings, are specially blended for your teeth, they can be closely matched to the color of existing teeth. This makes them preferred for use in front teeth or the more visible areas of the back teeth. If you have recently had your teeth whitened, we recommend waiting about a week before getting a tooth filled so we can properly match the color.

What types of treatments do fillings offer?

Composite fillings can be used to repair:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Close spaces between two teeth
  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Decayed teeth
  • Worn teeth

How Are Composite Fillings Placed?

Composite fillings usually require only one appointment for placement. Your dentist will start by numbing the area, and then removing any decay. The space created will then be carefully cleaned and prepared, and then the filling will be placed. Similar to a porcelain filling, a composite filling will then be precisely shaped and polished to restore your tooth to its original shape and function.

It is normal to experience sensitivity to hot and cold immediately after receiving a composite filling, but this will subside shortly after your tooth gets used to the new filling.

They have been amazing. Clarence has been mine and my husbands hygienist and has been incredible. Given that it’s been a while since we’ve gone to the dentist and we were nervous to go back, he’s done a great job at keeping us at peace and happy during our visits, which we appreciate so much!

Very honest and affordable!Love the family vibes in this office- not money hungry like other offices I been in the past. I highly recommend.The dr gives you different options if available- not like other offices that they make you think you only have one option- which is the most expensive route 🤔. Everyone in this office makes you feel great.

Nothing but positive things to say about this location. Everything from the cleanliness to the awesome customer service. This location encourages you to want to return & this is coming from someone who's disliked the dentist a lifetime. 10/10!
