Denver Dental Fillings

Contact Brilliant Family Dentistry today to learn more about our dental services.

Brilliant Family Dentistry provides comprehensive dental care in Denver, CO, including one of the most common dental procedures: fillings. If you need a cavity filled or an oral examination to identify the cause of tooth pain or other symptoms, schedule an appointment with our dentist’s office. We’ll ensure your filling provides the proper tooth protection and bite comfort.

What Are Dental Fillings?

Dentists recommend dental fillings to fill holes and cracks in teeth and prevent continued tooth decay. While dental professionals once used metal materials for fillings, modern dentists use tooth-colored fillings made of composite resin. If our dental office fills a tooth for you, we’ll select the white composite material that best matches your natural tooth color for a seamless appearance.

Why You May Need a Dental Filling

If a cavity reaches the internal tooth structure, other treatments may become necessary, such as a root canal, so it’s crucial not to delay dental treatment when you experience signs of a cavity.

Signs that you may have a cavity in need of a dental filling include the following:

  • Your teeth are sensitive to cold and hot.
  • Biting down causes pain or achiness.
  • You have a persistent toothache.
  • You have consistent issues with bad breath.
  • You can see visible holes or cracks.
  • You can see brown or black discoloration.

If you suspect you may have a cavity, don’t wait. Make an appointment with Brilliant Family Dentistry in Denver. We’ll thoroughly examine your oral health and the problem area to locate cavities in need of fillings.

What To Expect When Getting a Filling

The filling procedure is relatively simple and usually takes between 30 and 60 minutes. Before they begin, dental teams will use a local anesthetic to numb the patient’s mouth. This is often the most uncomfortable part of the entire procedure.

Once the patient is numb, the dentist removes any decay from the affected tooth to prevent it from spreading once they fill the cavity. The dentist fills the hole with a composite filling and uses a UV light to cure the resin. Lastly, the dentist will shape the resin to remove unneeded material and ensure a comfortable bite.

Caring for Your Dental Fillings

Fillings can last many years with the proper care, which includes the following:

  • Brushing with fluoride toothpaste twice a day
  • Flossing once per day and using mouthwash
  • Avoiding tobacco products and sugary snacks
  • Rinsing with water after drinking sugary or acidic beverages
  • Avoiding chewing on ice or other hard foods
  • Visiting your dentist for regular cleanings and exams

If you have old, worn-out fillings that need replacing, make an appointment with our Denver dental office.

I have been here multiple times having crowns put in,filling in areas with enamel corrosion ,cleaning and standard root canals, on my first visit I was depressed about my teeth humble state of affairs and didn't think much would be done with my insurance however at the end of the session I had my faith restored, total skill and professionalism, months later at the time of writing this , my teeth are no longer something iworry about! Also a very friendly and approachable staff not once did I feel any sharp pain or intolerable discomfort. Best dam dentist office I've ever been to.
