Make Teeth Look And Feel Natural Again.

We perform dental fillings using tooth-coloured composite resin, which blends seamlessly with your teeth and provides better bonding compared to metal fillings. This common procedure repairs and restores your tooth while preventing decay or infection, with less drilling needed.

Why Are Fillings Important For Dental Health?

Getting a filling may seem like a tedious task to some, leading them to procrastinate or question its necessity, particularly if there is no pain in the tooth (yet). However, we advise you to schedule your filling appointment as soon as possible due to the following reasons:

  • Halts the growth of cavities.
  • Prevents painful infections or abscesses.
  • Restores tooth strength and durability.
  • Provides long-term cost savings.
  • Reduces sensitivity to hot and cold.
  • Maintains the natural beauty of your smile for as long as possible.

How Is A Cavity Filled?

Gentle Freezing

We will commence by carefully numbing your gums to gently freeze the area, which might make some people anxious. However, this step is essential as it numbs your teeth and the surrounding region, resulting in minimal discomfort during the procedure.

Filling the Tooth

Once we have verified that you are comfortably frozen, we proceed to meticulously clean and prepare your tooth. Next, we apply an adhesive gel to the affected tooth, which serves as a base for the application of a composite resin, a white filling material that will be shaped and contoured to match your natural tooth structure and bite.

Hardening the Composite Material

Your tooth is filled or bonded using a composite resin material that is rapidly cured and hardened using a specialized LED light. After this, the dentist will thoroughly inspect your tooth and perform any necessary final adjustments before giving it a final polish.

The Cost Of A Filling In Trenton

Most dental insurance plans provide significant coverage for fillings since they are a common and effective method of preventing dental problems. The cost for fillings typically ranges from $0 to $100+ with insurance coverage, while without insurance, you could expect to pay anywhere from $120 to $300 or more, especially if multiple fillings are needed at the same time.

To determine the actual cost of your treatment, we take into account several essential factors, such as:

  • Your current oral health.
  • The number and location of cavities.
  • Whether new x-rays are necessary.
  • The amount of time required by the dental team to meet your specific needs.
  • The necessary equipment and supplies.

Prompt filling of cavities is very important to us as fillings are highly effective in preventing invasive treatments, dental pain, and promoting your overall health and wellbeing.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, composite fillings are safe. They are made of non-toxic materials and have been used for decades in dental restorations.

The lifespan of composite fillings depends on several factors such as oral hygiene, diet, and lifestyle habits. However, with proper care and maintenance, composite fillings should last well over ten years.

During the process of receiving a composite filling, the affected area will be numbed with a local anesthetic, which means that the procedure should be painless. However, after the anesthetic wears off, you may experience some sensitivity. Fortunately, this should subside within a few days.

To treat cavity pain, take pain medication, rinse with saltwater, apply a cold compress, avoid certain foods/drinks, maintain good oral hygiene, and see your dentist for treatment.

If you have severe or persistent cavity pain, it’s a dental emergency. In case of a dental emergency, call the dental office, explain the situation, and request an urgent appointment. Prompt treatment is crucial to prevent further complications.
