What are Dental Fillings?
If you’re experiencing constant toothaches or sensitivity to hot and cold foods, you may have a cavity. While cavities are frustrating to have, they’re also very common. Dr. Jammal and his team of dental professionals are happy to offer dental fillings to patients who have cavities or other damage to their teeth. A filling is a simple procedure in which a safe material is used to “fill in” the damaged area of the tooth to restore its appearance and function while restoring your comfort. If you’re unsure whether you have a cavity or need a filling, we encourage you to come in for a one-on-one appointment with Dr. Jammal. He’ll be happy to examine your teeth and develop a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve your happiest and healthiest smile.
Which Type of Dental Filling is Best?
Dental fillings can come in many different materials including gold. That being said, Dr. Jammal and his team at Buffalo General Dentistry typically use composite resin fillings to restore the tooth after removing decay from a cavity. There are a multitude of benefits of using composite resin for dental fillings, including:
- Bonds directly to the enamel of the tooth
- Requires fewer alterations of the tooth structure
- Blends in with the natural appearance of the tooth
- Smaller than traditional gold or silver fillings
- Allows most of the natural tooth to be preserved
Composite resin fillings allow for our patients to restore their beautiful smile without having traditional silver fillings distract from their natural smile. If you have additional questions about composite resin fillings, we encourage you to contact us at your convenience.
What Can I Expect During My Dental Filling?
Your dental filling will be performed by Dr. Daniel Jammal and his expert dental team in our comfortable office. Before your filling begins, a local anesthetic may be administered to your treatment area. Once numb, Dr. Jammal will carefully clear out any damaged and decayed portion of the tooth. He will then clean the cavity of the tooth thoroughly before filling it with a composite resin. The resin will be cured using a special light before the filling is complete and the patient can return to their normal daily activities.
How Much Do Dental Fillings Cost?
The cost of your dental fillings will vary depending on the extent of treatment needed to help you achieve your healthiest smile. The best way to find out how much your dental fillings will cost is to come in for a private appointment with Dr. Daniel Jammal. In addition to working with most insurance providers, we are happy to offer flexible financing options through CareCredit® and an in-house Smile Club Loyalty Plan.
