Types Of Tooth Fillings

Silver Amalgam Fillings

Tooth extraction is a procedure that involves removing a tooth from the mouth. A local anesthetic is given to numb the area and reduce pain or discomfort. The dentist will use either forceps or an elevator to loosen and extract the tooth from its socket. In some cases multiple instruments may be used if the tooth is impacted. Afterward, gauze may be applied over the extraction site to control bleeding and small sutures may be placed as needed. The time it takes for completion can range from 10-45 minutes depending on complexity. Patients may experience swelling, soreness, and slight discomfort at the extraction site, which should subside within a few days with proper recovery instructions provided by their dentist.

Composite Resin Fillings

Unlike traditional metal amalgam, composite resin fillings use a mixture of plastic resin and glass particles that bond to the tooth structure like glue when exposed to a curing light. These more modern fillings are often chosen by those looking for a more natural appearance as they match the coloration of your teeth more closely. As well as being cosmetically preferable, composite resins also require less drilling for application, meaning your teeth will be more intact after.  

 

Glass Ionomer Fillings

Glass ionomer is made from a special type of material that releases fluoride ions into your tooth structure over time which helps protect against further acid attacks caused by bacteria consuming sugars in your mouth. This is a great material for those high at rick for decay and cavities.

Our patients have lots of questions about tooth fillings in Paradise Valley.  Take a look at our FAQ or send us a message & we will get you an answer as soon as we can.

A tooth filling is an effective way to repair a damaged or decayed tooth. Fillings effectively restore the strength, function and appearance of the affected tooth, preventing further decay and promoting better overall oral health. Fillings also help prevent pain and sensitivity associated with cavities by protecting the nerve in the affected area.

The amount of time needed for a dental filling procedure depends on the size and severity of the cavity or damage; however, most procedures can be completed in one visit to the dentist office that typically lasts between 30 minutes to an hour.

Most patients do not experience significant discomfort when getting a tooth restored. However, each patient's experience will be different depending on the type and severity of their individual case. Generally speaking though, there is some minor discomfort associated with the procedure due to decay removal in order to prepare your tooth for the filling material. Depending on your comfort level you may opt for some form of sedation dentistry or local anesthesia during your visit to reduce any feelings of pain or anxiety associated with undergoing a dental filling procedure.

The cost for getting a dental filing in Paradise Valley will depend on several factors such as which kind of material is used for your specific case as well as how much preparation work is needed before placing the actual filing material into the affected area. On average prices range from $100 - $400 depending on these factors; however insurance coverage will reduce or nearly eliminate this cost entirely depending upon individual circumstances and provider policies. 

Typically speaking most types of dental fillings can last anywhere from 5 - 15 years depending on factors such as how large or deep they are versus small surface repairs or deeper restorations; how well they were placed; how well you maintain proper oral hygiene; if there is any grinding/clenching habits present that might put more wear and tear on them than normal; what type & quality material was used etc.. Proper care after placement should ensure that they last longer than expected so always follow up with regular dentist visits every 6 months for check ups / cleanings etc.

Tooth repair by a dental filling is generally accepted as a safe and predictable procedure. If existing decay is deep into the tooth, sensitivity can occur. Sometimes, if decay is too deep, a root canal or crown may be necessary to fully restore the tooth to health and function.
