Dental Fillings - Effective Restoration for Healthy Teeth

Dental fillings are a common and essential treatment at Warrington Dental PC for restoring teeth damaged by decay. Fillings help to restore the integrity and function of the tooth, preventing further decay and discomfort.

What are Dental Fillings and Why are They Needed?

Dental fillings are materials used to fill cavities (holes) in teeth caused by decay. They restore the tooth’s shape, strength, and prevent further decay. Fillings are necessary to repair damage and maintain the tooth’s structure.

What Types of Fillings are Available?

We offer various types of fillings, including amalgam (silver), composite (tooth-colored), gold, and ceramic. Each type has its advantages, and the choice depends on the location of the filling, aesthetic considerations, and cost.

What is the Process of Getting a Dental Filling?

The process involves removing decayed tooth material, cleaning the affected area, and then filling the cavity with the chosen filling material. The procedure is usually completed in one visit and involves local anesthesia for comfort.

How Long Do Dental Fillings Last?

The lifespan of a dental filling depends on the type of material used and your oral hygiene practices. Composite fillings can last 5-10 years, while amalgam fillings may last up to 15 years or more.

Are Dental Fillings Painful?

The process of getting a filling is typically not painful due to the use of local anesthesia. There may be some sensitivity immediately after the procedure, but this usually subsides quickly.
