Two Types of Dental Fillings

Choosing the Right Filling for You.

The best filling for you will depend on several factors, including the location and extent of the decay, your oral health needs, and your budget. During your consultation, Dr. Nguyen will discuss your options and help you choose the filling material best suited to your needs.

The Filling Process

The process of receiving a dental filling typically takes only one appointment:

  1. Dr. Nguyen will numb the area around the tooth to ensure comfort during the procedure.
  2. Any decayed or damaged tooth structure will be removed, and the area will be cleaned and prepared for the filling material. The filling material will then be placed in the tooth and shaped to restore its natural form and function.
  3. The filling will be hardened with a special light and polished to match the sheen of your natural teeth.

Aftercare and Maintenance

Following your filling appointment, it is expected to experience some sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures. This should subside within a few days. It is important to continue practicing good oral hygiene, including brushing and flossing regularly, to prevent future decay and prolong the life of your filling.
