Dental Filling

At different stages of development, your child may have baby teeth, permanent teeth, or a combination of both. In any case, if your child develops a cavity, we need to remove the decay and fill the tooth. At The Dental Home Clinic, we use white fillings, a conservative and healthy choice for dental repairs.

Composite fillings bond securely to the tooth so that less tooth structure needs to be removed to place a strong, durable filling. White fillings are especially appropriate for young children because the material sets up quickly.

Since your child’s comfort is our top priority, we offer gentle WaterLase dentistry. WaterLase uses dental lasers and a cool stream of water to remove decay without drilling. Tooth decay can be targeted precisely while leaving surrounding areas unaffected. Since the process is so comfortable, most simple fillings do not require the use of anesthesia.

White fillings are also a great choice for adults. They offer the same benefit of preserving healthy tooth structure, but they also look natural and can be made to closely match the shade of your teeth. This allows us to create an aesthetic repair that is virtually unnoticeable.

How Long Does A Dental Filling Last?

Dental fillings usually last between 7 to 15 years. It is advisable to replace old filling once the wear and tear starts

Can Dental Filling Fall Off?

Unfortunately, a tooth filling is a temporary restoration and won't last forever. Fillings can fall out due to a variety of reasons such as tooth decay forming around the restoration, biting down on something too hard, or simply because you've had a filling for several years

What To Do If Your Fillings Come Out?

If your filling fell out but you're feeling no pain, you can wait a little longer -a few days to a week. It's not an immediate emergency, but we still need to get you in because your tooth will continue to decay. The cracked filling is exposed to bacteria, which will rot the tooth.

How To Know That Dental Filling Is Loose?

If you have sensitivity even after getting the filling done, then it is likely that your filling is about to come off. Or if you feel pressure while eating or have a constant toothache then the chances of it coming off is high.
