What are fillings?

Fillings or dental fillings are used to repair the damaged surfaces of teeth. The surface of teeth may be damaged by small fractures, damaged enamel or decay. It takes 25 to 90 minutes to place a filling in a tooth.

What different types of fillingsare there?

Dental fillings are made of gold, silver, mercury or amalgam, porcelain or ceramic, plastic, composite resin materials or a glass and acrylic mixture called glass inomer.

Is getting a filling painful?

Preparing the tooth to place a filling by removing the decayed portion using a dental drill should not be painful. Some patients find the preparation procedure uncomfortable and painful. The dentist will administer a local anaesthic to ensure that the patient does not feel pain during the procedure.

 

How long does recovery after fillings are placed take?

Patients may experience pain or sensitivity for a few weeks after a filling is placed. The area where the anaesthetic was injected will feel sore for a few days. The gums of the patient will also feel sore for a few days.

How do I care for my teeth after fillings are placed?

Patients should not eat for at least three hours till the anaesthesia wears off. They should not eat or drink anything that is too hot or too cold for a few days. They should avoid very hard food. They should take all prescribed medications correctly. They should follow correct dental hygiene and brush and floss their teeth regularly.

What are the alternatives to placing fillings?

Alternatives to dental fillings are dental crowns, inlays or onlays, or tooth remineralization.

Albert Kadosh DDS

450 Sutter Street, Suite 2040, San Francisco, 94108
We are located in the historic Art Deco 450 Sutter Street building in downtown San Francisco.Our goal is to provide our patients with pleasant dental experiences. As a team, we are strongly committed to educate, motivate, encourage and inspire our patients to become actively involved in preventive dentistry. When repair is necessary or when cosmetic enhancements are desired, we will strive to provide that service with care and comfort. We are committed to the highest quality in our dental services, as well as to our own personal and professional growth through continuing post-graduate education. Ours is a health-centered dental practice, as opposed to an insurance-driven practice. Our recommendations for treatment are based on sound judgment, not on what dental plans may "allow". The initial appointment is devoted to reviewing medical and dental histories and conducting a thorough clinical examination. Diagnostic films, models and photos are updated as necessary. This comprehensive examination allows us to more accurately diagnose and treat. Treatment options are thoroughly explained at the subsequent appointment. Fee estimates and payment arrangements are also reviewed at this time. Further appointments are then scheduled for the completion of treatment and hygiene maintenance. When emergency treatment is necessary, the complete examination is accomplished on the second office visit. We welcome referrals of family and friends and appreciate the opportunity to serve them.

Fillings $230 - $400
A composite (tooth colored) filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling. There are many types of filling materials available, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. You and your dentist can discuss the best options for restoring your teeth. Composite fillings, along with silver amalgam fillings, are the most widely used today. Because composite fillings are tooth colored, they can be closely matched to the color of existing teeth, and are more aesthetically suited for use in front teeth or the more visible areas of the teeth. As with most dental restorations, composite fillings are not permanent and may someday have to be replaced. They are very durable, and will last many years, giving you a long lasting, beautiful smile.
White Filling $230 - $400
Composite fillings are usually placed in one appointment. While the tooth is numb, your dentist will remove decay as necessary. The space will then be thoroughly cleaned and carefully prepared before the new filling is placed. If the decay was near the nerve of the tooth, a special medication will be applied for added protection. The composite filling will then be precisely placed, shaped, and polished, restoring your tooth to its original shape and function.It is normal to experience sensitivity to hot and cold when composite fillings are first placed, however this will subside shortly after your tooth acclimates to the new filling. You will be given care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Good oral hygiene practices, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new fillings.
