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.

Very friendly bilingual staff and are very direct about pricing so you won’t be surprised on what you will have to pay at the end. They are sure to check your insurance coverage and let you know what your responsibility will be. My experience here has been wonderful. I will continue to use them as my regular dentist office.

Very respectful employees in out of my appointment very clean environment 🙂 look forward to going back only think I see wrong is the parking lot cars are so close together its hard trying to get in your car plus no handicap parking on north side of building which makes it hard for my dad to get in and out of his car
