Tooth Fillings in Rock Hill SC
When it comes time for you to need tooth fillings, you can feel confident that the appearance of your smile won’t be compromised. Dr. Seth and Dr. Sheftall recommends a composite (tooth colored) filling to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures.Our Rock Hill Dentists remove bacteria from a tooth and then filled them with a Tooth Colored Filling. Tooth colored resins are also used to fix small chips and gaps in front teeth. Composite fillings are usually placed in one appointment. At Riverwalk Smile Dentistry, While the tooth is numb, Dr. Seth and Dr. Sheftall will remove the 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, dentist will apply a special medication 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. 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.
