Keep Your Smile Looking Great With Tooth-Colored Fillings

Metal fillings can stick out like a sore thumb in your smile. That’s not the only reason our dentists don’t use them, however. To fit precisely, metal fillings require removing some of your healthy tooth structure. When they need to be replaced, you may need to invest in a dental crown instead.

To keep your smile beautiful and maintain your oral health, Dr. Juarez and our skilled team repair your tooth decay with tooth-colored fillings. No one will even know you’ve had dental work done!

At Houston Uptown Dentists, we can catch dental decay early during your regular dental cleanings and exams. To ensure we won’t overlook any potential signs of decay, we use a state-of-the-art DIAGNOdent cavity detection system. Once we have determined you need a filling, we will:

  • Plan your treatment using fast digital X-rays
  • Numb the area with local anesthetic
  • Relax you with sedation if you suffer from anxiety
  • Clean the decay from your tooth
  • Repair your tooth with a composite material color-matched to your tooth

In some cases, we can repair your cavity with a laser, for an even quicker and more comfortable process. The Fotona Laser allows us to remove the decayed area with little to no discomfort. Most patients don’t even need anesthesia! The Fotona Laser is modern dentistry at its finest, and you can benefit from it right here.

If you are experiencing a toothache, sensitivity to hot or cold substances, or pain in your tooth when biting down, you could have a cavity. Call us today at 832-463-1021 for Houston tooth fillings. You can also make an appointment online. Ask about our $49 emergency consultation, which includes a limited exam and any needed X-rays.

Common Questions About Tooth Fillings

What are white tooth fillings made of?

White fillings are made out of either composite resin, a blend of ceramic and plastic, or porcelain. We can match the color of these materials to your other teeth so they will look completely natural in your smile. Unlike amalgam (metal) fillings, white fillings don’t contain mercury. So they’re a good choice for patients who prefer to avoid mercury.

What tooth fillings are safe?

All dental fillings are safe for most patients. However, some studies have raised concerns about the long-term health impact of mercury, which is used in amalgam fillings. Both the FDA and the American Dental Association say mercury in fillings is safe. However, mercury isn’t a concern at all with our composite fillings.

How long do tooth fillings last?

After your dentist places your new filling, you should expect it to last for several years without any problems. On average, composite fillings should last about five to seven years, although other factors do come into play. Depending on which tooth has the filling and the types of foods you eat, your filling may last a longer or shorter period of time.

Are tooth fillings painful?

Getting a tooth filled does not have to be a painful experience. Your dentist and staff at Houston Uptown Dentists will make sure that your procedure goes smoothly and is comfortable. We’ll first use a local anesthetic to ensure that the area around the tooth is completely numb. We also offer three relaxing forms of sedation if you need a little extra help getting comfortable

Can tooth fillings come out?

Yes, tooth fillings can occasionally come out. If a person tends to eat a lot of chewy, sticky, or hard foods and candies, their fillings can come out. If this happens to you, try to put the filling back in place if possible, then call our office as soon as you can so we can get you in and replace the filling.
