About Tooth-Colored Fillings

Unlike metal fillings, tooth-colored fillings are white and typically made of resin or porcelain to match the natural shade of your tooth. The great advantage of tooth-colored fillings are their ability to blend in with your teeth without standing out like traditional metal fillings. This provides a seamless cosmetic look that most patients desire. Tooth-colored fillings are strong, durable, long-lasting, and less sensitive to temperature than metal fillings. They are also a great option for those with small cavities that need to be filled. If patients are in need of a filling, call Emigh Dental Care today. Our family practice will be able discuss all the benefits of tooth-colored fillings with in great detail during an exam at our Long Beach, CA office. 

What to Expect

Our practice offers patients a one-of-a-kind experience when undergoing a filling procedure. Prior to the procedure, the patient's tooth will be photographed and measured to create a filling that is comfortable and matches the shade of the tooth. The filling, made of resin, is then bonded to the tooth. The procedure seeks to create a filling that fits each patient's unique tooth structure and covers the entire area that needs protection. This procedure can cause minor pain and discomfort, so most patients will not be able to immediately return to their regular routines.

Treatment Aftercare

After a filling procedure, patients will need time, at least 1 – 3 hours, to allow the anesthesia to wear off before they can leave our office. Patients should be cautious in talking or chewing so they do not bite the inside of their mouth or tongue while the area is numb. The gums may also be tender or sore at the injection site, but this will subside in a day or so. The tooth or teeth will be sensitive to hot or cold liquids or food for a short time; this is normal and temporary. Should patients feel any extreme discomfort or unevenness in the tooth after the anesthesia has worn off, they should call our office immediately. Patients should not expect to receive any medication or special instructions unless directed by our dentists during their consultation or post-surgery exam.
