Keep Your Smile in Shape With a Tooth Filling

You probably don’t think too often about getting a tooth filled – that is, until you need to have it done. You may have noticed pain when biting down or been told that you have a cavity. Whatever the case, we can fill your tooth and ensure your smile stays healthy.

Although we mostly place composite resin tooth fillings, you can also get a traditional metal filling if needed. Composite works well in most situations. Since it is tooth-colored, it blends in well with the rest of your smile. Metal fillings are sometimes used for larger areas of decay or to give more strength to the tooth repair. We can discuss the pros and cons of both types and make a recommendation accordingly.

We can also place inlays, onlays, and crowns for more extensive repair:

  • Inlays – These restorations cover the top of a tooth between the cusps (tips).
  • Onlays – While similar to inlays, they also extend onto the sides of a tooth.
  • Crowns – A crown covers your entire tooth to protect and strengthen it. We can make same-day crowns using our CEREC system if needed.

When you need tooth fillings in Burlington, come to Relax Dental. Call us today at 336-347-4195 to schedule an appointment. Make sure your smile stays healthy and beautiful!

Common Questions About Tooth Fillings

Which tooth fillings are safe?

Opinions vary widely on which fillings are safe and which are not. Some dental professionals feel that traditional amalgam (silver) fillings should be avoided because of the mercury they contain. However, the ADA and FDA believe they are safe and pose no threat to your health. We place mostly non-metal composite fillings that are made up of tiny particles of glass and plastic.

When do tooth fillings need to be replaced?

Tooth fillings can be made from a variety of different materials. At Relax Dental, we use mostly tooth-colored fillings made from composite resin. Not only will they last an average of five to seven years, but they also blend in beautifully with the rest of your teeth; they won’t stand out like metal fillings.

Are tooth fillings painful?

Our tooth fillings are placed in the most comfortable way possible. Our team will make sure that the area we’re working on is completely numb before we try to fill any teeth. You shouldn’t feel a thing except for a slight sensation of pressure. Plus, we’ll fully answer any questions you have before we get started.
