Questions We Are Frequently Asked About Dental Fillings

What are dental fillings and why are they necessary?

Dental fillings are a common dental procedure used to repair minor tooth decay or damage, such as cavities. When a tooth is decayed, the damaged or decayed part is removed, and the area is filled with a filling material. This process restores the tooth’s structure and prevents further decay or damage.

What materials are used for fillings at York Village Dental?

At York Village Dental, we use the latest materials like ceramic, porcelain, and composite for fillings. These tooth-colored materials are not only strong and durable but also blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, maintaining the aesthetic appeal of your smile.

How long do dental fillings last?

The lifespan of a dental filling can vary depending on the material used and your oral hygiene practices. Generally, tooth-colored fillings like ceramic, porcelain, and composite can last for many years with proper care. Regular dental check-ups are essential to monitor the condition of your fillings.

Are dental fillings painful?

The process of getting a filling is typically not painful. Local anesthesia is used to numb the area, ensuring a comfortable experience. Some sensitivity or discomfort may be experienced after the procedure, but it usually subsides quickly.

How do I care for my teeth after getting a filling?

After getting a filling, it’s important to maintain good oral hygiene. This includes brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and avoiding hard or sticky foods for a short period after the procedure. Regular dental check-ups are also crucial for maintaining the health of your fillings.

Can fillings fall out or get damaged?

While fillings are durable, they can sometimes fall out or get damaged, especially if they are old or if you chew hard foods. If you notice a loose or damaged filling, it’s important to contact your dentist immediately for a replacement.

Are tooth-colored fillings better than metal fillings?

Tooth-colored fillings, like those used at York Village Dental, are often preferred for their aesthetic appeal as they match the natural color of your teeth. They also bond well with the tooth structure and require less removal of the tooth structure compared to metal fillings.

Can I eat immediately after getting a filling?

It’s best to wait until the numbness from the anesthesia wears off before eating. With tooth-colored fillings, you can usually eat as soon as you feel comfortable, but it’s advisable to avoid very hot or cold foods for a few days.

Can fillings help prevent further tooth decay?

After getting a filling, it’s important to maintain good oral hygiene. This includes brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and avoiding hard or sticky foods for a short period after the procedure. Regular dental check-ups are also crucial for maintaining the health of your fillings.

What happens during the filling procedure?

During the filling procedure, the dentist will first numb the area. Then, the decayed or damaged part of the tooth is removed, and the area is cleaned. The filling material is then applied, shaped, and hardened with a special light.
