How do dental fillings work?

A dental filling is a restorative treatment that repairs small cavities, fractures, and gaps. After using a local anesthetic, Dr. Shapiro will remove the decayed part of the tooth. Then, they’ll clean it carefully and fill the removed area, shaping it so it fits perfectly.

This procedure will prevent future damage and help you restore the function of your tooth, so you can eat, talk, and smile without pain.

“If you live in the South Florida region and are looking for top world-class service, seek Dr. Shapiro and his staff! You won’t regret it!”

Common questions about tooth fillings

What are tooth fillings?

Dental fillings are used to repair tooth damage produced by tooth decay in the form of a cavity. During this procedure, your dentist will remove decayed tooth structure and restore your tooth’s natural shape, function, and appearance.

A filling can be made of porcelain, resin, dental composites, or other materials.

Do dental fillings hurt?

Getting a dental filling is generally pain-free. You could feel some mild discomfort during and after the procedure, but this will be temporary. If you feel extreme sensitivity or pain in the days after a tooth filling, let your dentist know as soon as possible.

How long does a tooth filling take?

A dental filling is a relatively short procedure. Depending on your situation, it can take between 20 to 60 minutes to complete.

How can I pay for tooth fillings?
