Types of Dental Fillings

Did you know that there are several types of fillings? We can help you choose a material based on your insurance coverage, budget, and aesthetic preferences.

Fillings can be made out of:

  • Porcelain
  • Amalgam
  • Glass ionomer
  • Composite resin
  • Metals, such as gold or silver

The most common choices are amalgam and composite resin. While fillings are primarily used for cavities, they can also help to repair a broken tooth or improve damage from teeth grinding.

What to Expect at Your Dental Appointment

We can usually complete a filling in less than an hour. The process can be uncomfortable because we need to work so close to the nerves deep down in your teeth. That is why we typically numb your gums, teeth, and mouth before we begin. After we apply local anesthetic, you should only feel pressure, not pain.

Once you are ready to go, we use a special dental drill to rid your mouth of all decay and fill the remaining hole with a durable material. The amount of drilling necessary will depend on the severity of the cavity. There are not any major risks associated with filling a cavity but feel free to call us after your appointment if you have any concerns. Your mouth may remain numb for a few hours.
