‘You need a filling’; a sentence no one wants to hear after their dental appointment.
Although the word filling can seem scary, there’s nothing to worry about when it comes to tooth filling! The procedure to get a filling is virtually painless, and once completed, you won’t even be able to tell the difference between your natural teeth and the dental procedure. The key is to find a dentist who makes you feel comfortable and provides you with the highest level of dental care, such as First Hill Dental Center.
More often than not, if you need a filling, it’s because tooth decay has been detected, such as a cavity. By removing the decayed material from your tooth, fillings close the hole and prevent any further damage and decay to your tooth of concern.
When you come to First Hill Dental Center, you can trust that your teeth are in good hands. To prepare for your tooth filling we will clean the infected area thoroughly, and then fill the space with a composite filling. Our composite filling is a natural tooth color and is made to match your teeth. Unlike gold and silver, you won’t be able to even tell it’s there. This is just one of our many dental care services.
Do I need a filling?
Only your dentist at First Hill Dental Center will be able to tell you if you need a filling or not. It’s important to routinely come in to see us twice a year, to ensure your teeth are in top condition, and there are no signs of decay and damage.
Getting a filling is a relatively easy procedure, and you can go back to eating normal foods almost as soon as you leave our office. Our goal at First Hill Dental Center is to give you a bright smile you are confident about. With composite fillings, you have absolutely nothing to worry about.
