Dental Fillings in Riverview, MI

Dental fillings are a fundamental aspect of oral health care, designed to restore decayed, damaged, or worn teeth to their original condition. At A Dental Center, we use the latest materials, including composite, amalgam, gold, and porcelain, to ensure your fillings last and match the aesthetics of your natural teeth. Whether you’re addressing cavities or repairing chips and cracks, our tailored approach will enhance the strength and appearance of your teeth, minimizing future issues and maintaining your overall oral health.

The process of receiving a dental filling at A Dental Center begins with a thorough examination to identify decay or damage, followed by removing the affected area. The tooth is then cleaned and prepared for the filling material. Whether you opt for composite, amalgam, gold, or porcelain, the filling is carefully shaped and polished to restore your tooth’s natural appearance and function. Dr. Potocsky and his team take every measure to provide a comfortable and stress-free experience with every dental visit.

Frequently Asked Questions About Fillings

Many patients are concerned about discomfort during the dental filling process. At A Dental Center, we prioritize your comfort and use effective local anesthesia to numb the area around the affected tooth. Our skilled dentists are experienced in gentle techniques to minimize any discomfort or anxiety. Post-procedure sensitivity is normal and usually temporary, but we are here to provide you with care instructions and support to ensure a smooth recovery.

You may need a filling if you experience symptoms of tooth decay or damage, such as sensitivity to hot or cold, pain when biting down, visible holes or black spots on your teeth, and discomfort in the tooth or around the gum line. We use advanced diagnostic tools during your examination to identify cavities or damage not visible to the naked eye. If a filling is needed, we’ll explain your options and the recommended course of action to restore your tooth to optimal health.

The longevity of a dental filling depends largely on the material used, the size of the filling, its location, and your oral hygiene practices. Composite resin fillings can last 5 to 10 years with proper care. Amalgam and gold fillings often last 10 to 15 years or more. We encourage regular check-ups and good oral hygiene to extend the life of your fillings and maintain overall dental health.
