    What to Expect at Your Fillings Appointment

    We provides comprehensive dental services, including preventive care, restorative procedures, cosmetic dentistry, and orthodontics. Our skilled team ensures personalized treatment plans, utilizing advanced technology for optimal oral health and stunning smiles.
    step-1
    Consultation
    Dr. Sinha will examine your tooth to determine if a filling is sufficient or if you will need a dental crown.
    step-2
    Anesthetic & Sedation Options
    A local anesthetic is always used to numb the mouth at the beginning of the procedure. You are also given the option to be sedated for your appointment.
    step-3
    Drilling
    Following complete numbing of your mouth, a dental drill will gently remove decay from the cavity, ensuring a painless and precise procedure for optimal dental health.
    step-4
    Filling
    Following preparation, layers of composite resin are meticulously applied onto the tooth's surface, gradually building up its structure and ensuring seamless integration with the natural tooth enamel.
    step-5
    Shaping & Bonding
    UV light is used to cure the filling, which hardens it. From there, we will perform additional shaping and polishing of the tooth.

    Types of Dental Fillings

    There are several types of dental fillings available, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. The choice of filling material often depends on factors such as the location of the cavity, the extent of decay, aesthetic concerns, and budget. Here are some common types of dental fillings:

    Composite Resin Fillings

    These fillings are made from a mixture of plastic and glass materials that match the color of natural teeth. Composite fillings are commonly used for front teeth or other visible areas because they can be closely matched to the color of the surrounding teeth. They are not as durable as amalgam fillings and may need to be replaced more frequently.

    Amalgam Fillings

    These are silver-colored fillings made from a mixture of metals including mercury, silver, tin, and copper. Amalgam fillings are durable and relatively inexpensive, but they are less aesthetically pleasing than tooth-colored fillings.

    Porcelain Fillings

    Porcelain fillings, also known as inlays or onlays, are made from a tooth-colored material that is custom-made in a dental laboratory and then bonded to the tooth. They are more durable than composite fillings and can be color-matched to the natural teeth.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Experience the transformative impact of permanent full-arch dental implants as depicted in a carefully curated collection highlighting the incredible evolution from tentative smiles to confident, radiant grins of the present.

    What are dental fillings?

    Dental fillings are materials used to fill cavities caused by decay. At PS Dental, we use high-quality composite resin or porcelain fillings to restore the strength and function of your teeth while maintaining a natural appearance.
    At PS Dental, we prioritize patient comfort. Before the procedure, we use local anesthesia to numb the area, ensuring minimal discomfort during the filling process. Afterward, any residual discomfort typically subsides quickly, and you can resume your normal activities shortly after your appointment.
    The longevity of dental fillings depends on various factors such as oral hygiene, diet, and the material used. However, with proper care and regular dental check-ups at PS Dental, composite resin and porcelain fillings can last for many years, providing durable support and protection for your teeth.
    While rare, dental fillings can occasionally become loose or fall out due to factors like decay underneath the filling or trauma. If you notice any changes in your filling’s integrity, contact PS Dental immediately for an evaluation and prompt repair to prevent further complications.
    Maintaining good oral hygiene practices, such as brushing twice daily, flossing, and regular dental visits at PS Dental, is essential for prolonging the lifespan of your dental fillings. Avoiding hard or sticky foods can also help prevent damage to the fillings and maintain their integrity over time.
    Many dental insurance plans cover the cost of dental fillings, although coverage can vary depending on your specific plan and provider. Our knowledgeable team at PS Dental will work closely with you to maximize your insurance benefits and help you understand any out-of-pocket expenses associated with your treatment.
    Yes, at PS Dental, we offer metal filling removal and replacement with tooth-colored composite resin or porcelain fillings for a more aesthetically pleasing and durable solution. Schedule a consultation with our experienced dentists to discuss your options for replacing old metal fillings.
    Dental fillings made from composite resin or porcelain materials are considered safe and biocompatible for most patients. At PS Dental, we use high-quality materials and adhere to strict safety protocols to ensure the health and well-being of our patients during every dental procedure.
    Dental fillings do not typically require any special maintenance beyond regular oral hygiene practices. However, it’s essential to attend routine dental check-ups at PS Dental, where our skilled dental professionals can monitor the condition of your fillings and address any issues promptly.
    You can typically resume eating shortly after getting a dental filling at PS Dental. However, it’s best to avoid consuming hot or hard foods immediately after the procedure while the anesthesia wears off. Once sensation returns to your mouth, you can gradually reintroduce your normal diet with caution.

    Had my cleaning done with Amanda who was incredibly thorough and such a pleasure to chat with. Had my cleaning done about 20 minutes after being shook by the little earthquake so my anxiety level was a little high. Amanda was gentle and very informative throughout the cleaning. She made me feel calm and relaxed in her care. Dr. Sinha then came in to check my X-rays and my teeth. I love that he takes his time and doesn’t rush through. He offers great explanation into his decision making process and I think he’s one the most honest dentists I have encountered. The energy in this practice is so positive and it was all around a great experience. They stay up to date with the newest advances in dental care and the office is super clean. I am happy to be a patient here. 💯 recommend to anyone who cares about their teeth and is looking for a great dentist. Thank you guys for being so awesome!❤️

    I was in search of a new dentist after relocating to the area. Came across PS Dental and was very pleased with the overall service, quant office and service team. Amanda (hygienist) was very professional and her cleaning was painless. Morgan (front office) response time was beyond expectations and she was able to answer my many inquiries. 10/10 experience overall and I will be having my wife come over as a new patient hopefully soon!
