Fillings Q & A

What are fillings?

Fillings at RR Dentistry are made of specialized dental materials that your dentist applies to teeth with minor decay or damage. Your dentist could recommend fillings for your tooth if you have a small cavity, a minor crack, or other minor problems. For more severe decay or damage, your specialist could recommend a crown, root canal, or tooth extraction.

What are the benefits of dental fillings?

Some of the many benefits you can expect after receiving fillings at RR Dentistry include teeth that are:

  • Stronger
  • Healthier
  • Less painful
  • Long-lasting
  • More functional

Because white fillings and cosmetic fillings are the same color as your natural teeth, other people won’t notice them.

Are dental fillings right for me?

Your RR Dentistry specialist asks about your oral health history and your symptoms to find out if you're a candidate for dental fillings. They take dental X-rays if needed and examine your teeth, mouth, and gums before developing a highly effective treatment plan.

What should I expect when getting a filling?

When getting a filling at RR Dentistry, you relax in a comfortable dental chair. If needed, your specialist numbs the treatment area and removes any tooth decay. They then apply filling materials to affected teeth and use a special light to harden each filling.

What happens after filling placement?

After getting a filling, there’s no pain or downtime, so you can get back to your normal routine right away. If you need a same-day CEREC® crown, the experts at RR Dentistry digitally scan your mouth, make a custom-fitted crown right in the office, and bond it over the top of your natural tooth and filling. 

Call the RR Dentistry office if your filling gets damaged, falls off, or becomes uncomfortable. See your dentist at least every six months for professional teeth cleanings and dental exams to reduce the risk of tooth decay.

Adopt good oral hygiene habits at home. Brush your teeth after meals, use mouthwash if your dentist recommends it, and floss every day. Avoid chewing on ice and other hard objects.
