Frequently Asked Questions
If you experience tooth sensitivity or pain or notice visible signs of decay, such as dark spots or holes on the tooth surface, you may need a dental filling. It is essential to schedule a dental examination with our experienced dentists, who will assess your teeth and recommend the appropriate treatment, including dental fillings if necessary.
At Mary St. Dental Health, we use tooth-coloured composite resin fillings, which offer excellent aesthetics and durability. Composite resin fillings are custom-made to match the natural colour of your teeth, providing a seamless blend with your smile. Additionally, they bond well with the tooth structure, creating a strong and reliable restoration.
The process of getting a dental filling is generally not painful. Before starting the procedure, we administer local anaesthesia to numb the affected area, ensuring your comfort throughout the treatment. You may feel some pressure or minor discomfort during the preparation and placement of the filling, but any pain is usually minimal and short-lived.
The longevity of dental fillings depends on various factors, such as the size of the filling, its location in the mouth, and your oral hygiene practises. With proper care, tooth-coloured composite resin fillings can last for many years. Regular dental check-ups and good oral hygiene habits, including brushing and flossing, can help extend the lifespan of your fillings.
Yes, after getting a dental filling, you can resume your regular eating habits once the anaesthesia wears off. However, it's advisable to avoid consuming extremely hot or cold foods and beverages for a few hours after the procedure, as your teeth may be sensitive. We will provide you with specific post-treatment instructions to ensure a smooth recovery and maintain the longevity of the filling.
