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.

It took me a while to actually sit down and write this review and there are a couple reasons why. First I didn't want to make a rash opinion by only coming maybe once or twice but now that I've been to this clinic about 4 times I thought it was time to finally give my thoughts. Secondly I am extremely terrified of dentist even now but I didn't want that to cloud the truth of the office. I want to start off by saying that all the staff are very kind and are always willing to answer your questions. Everything was explained to me and they were completely honest which is something that I like. Dr. Lala is very kind and has a way of calming even this crazy person down and is very accommodating. The dental assistants are all nice but I've had the pleasure of always running into one in particular named Erica and she always makes me feel at ease and makes me laugh. Truth be told, I know that it's scary and nerve wrecking going to a dentist but it's nice to go somewhere where they'll treat you nice throughout your visit.
