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.

I absolutely loved it. The staff was professional and very welcoming. My tooth had to be removed and I have to admit that the dentist is not my happy place. However I felt very comfortable, Dr. Harsini made sure I was in no pain before the procedure. I would totally be returning there sometimes.

My first time in the office. The facility was clean and staff was informative and friendly. All of my questions were answered and then some. My first visit was $46, with that I had Xrays done, photos taken, spoke with a hygentist, and also the physician. The prices are reasonable. One person imparticular that stood out was Erika. She is the dental assistance and not only did she carry a great conversation, she was very informative. She even recieved praises from the hygentist on how well she was "on it". I will be back again.
