Natural-Coloured Fillings

Like traditional fillings, the tooth-coloured ones are used to restore form and function to decaying teeth.

Tooth-coloured fillings can be used to treat new cavities or to replace old silver-coloured fillings. They are so natural it’s difficult to distinguish between your new filling and the rest of your teeth.

In Red Deer, Parkland Mall Dental uses cosmetically appealing white filling materials to provide durability and resistance to further decay.

Tooth Coloured Filling

Before Your Filling

We will usually take an X-ray to assess how decayed your tooth is and develop a treatment plan unique to your needs.

Teeth can be filled with a variety of materials, including gold, composite resin, metal amalgam and porcelain. Each one has certain benefits associated with the material’s cost, durability and esthetics. We might also recommend a certain filler based on the size of the cavity and its location in your mouth.

During Your Filling

We numb your teeth, gums and the surrounding area. If there is more than one cavity in the area, it is often best to fix them all at the same time.

Once the local anesthetic takes effect, we remove the decayed part of your tooth using an instrument that may vibrate a little.

Finally, we fill the cavity with the selected material and allow it to harden.

After making sure your filling fits properly, we polish the tooth to create a smooth surface.

Depending on the size and complexity of each filling, the entire procedure takes approximately 15 -45 minutes per filling.

After Your Filling

The area of your mouth that was treated will likely still be numb as you leave your appointment. (You might even notice a little bit of drool.)

Wait until the anesthetic wears off before eating or drinking something hot. This will take a few hours and will help you avoid injuries such as biting your tongue, cheeks, or lips.

When you do begin to eat again, chew slowly and bite softly. Depending on the material used to fill your tooth, we might recommend that you avoid eating hard or sticky foods for some time.

You might experience some soreness or tooth sensitivity for a few days. It’s important to keep up with your oral care routine, even if you experience some discomfort.

Prolonged tooth sensitivity or pain could indicate an irritated nerve or infection. In this case you should contact us immediately.

Dental fillings wear down from chewing and may need to be replaced periodically. The durability of your filling is also affected by your oral hygiene habits, grinding your teeth and how often you receive regular preventive checkups.

Timely Dental Care

A cavity isn’t a panic, but attending to fillings prevents cavities from getting worse.
