Our dental fillings process.

01. Consultation

Through digital scans and a visual examination, we’ll assess your smile and carefully plan your procedure. We can also prescribe pain medications for after your surgery by request.

02. Preparation

Whether we’re replacing an old filling or placing a new one, the filling site will need to be cleaned and prepared.

03. Filling Placement

If you’re receiving an amalgam or composite filling, you’ll typically need just a single appointment.

04. Health Review

Once your filling is in place, we’ll explain how to care for it in the short (and long) term, and provide guidance on avoiding future cavities.

Have more questions about fillings?

We can! However, unless they’re damaged or causing you discomfort, silver/amalgam fillings generally don’t need to be replaced. They’re typically replaced for aesthetic reasons rather than health reasons.

There are two common types of filling materials: composite and amalgam (also known as metal, silver, or mercury fillings).

Each has its own advantages and drawbacks. Composite is affordable, natural looking, and repairable, but it’s also less durable and more prone to staining compared to amalgam. Along with being stain resistant, amalgam fillings are strong, long-lasting, and economical, but they can also be quite visible and potentially cause health issues for people with metal sensitivity.

For small cavities, fillings are almost always the best solution. If the decay has spread to a larger external area, then an inlay or onlay may be more suitable. In cases where the decay has worked its way into the tooth, a root canal may be the only option.

No, we apply local anesthetic to the treatment area before your procedure begins, so there’s little to no pain when you receive a filling.

At most you’ll just feel a very small amount of discomfort from the local anesthetic working to numb your nerves.

hurt your smile.
