How Does the Filling Process Work?

A dental filling is a procedure that is used to replace tooth material lost to decay.  Dr. Metcalfe has treated thousands of patients with tooth decay.  Initially, he will apply a numbing gel to your tooth and the surrounding gum tissue to eliminate any discomfort you may experience.  If necessary, a local anesthesia will be utilized to ensure your total comfort.  Once you are comfortable, he will remove any unhealthy bacteria and decay.  When this has been removed, the tooth will be reshaped, and the cavity filled with composite resin tinted to match the shade of your existing teeth.

Benefits of White Fillings

White fillings offer significantly more benefits that traditional amalgam fillings including:

  • More Aesthetically Pleasing – Unlike silver fillings, composite fillings are tinted to match your natural teeth. Additionally, silver amalgam can seep into adjacent teeth over time, darkening and staining otherwise healthy teeth.
  • Less Tooth Preparation – Very little of the tooth’s structure is removed. Only the decayed part of the tooth is removed during prep preserving more of your natural tooth.
  • Your Tooth will be Stronger – White fillings can help strengthen your tooth, while amalgam fillings can weaken the tooth over time. The metal in amalgam can expand and contract over time posing a higher risk of structural damage to your tooth.
  • Metal Free – White fillings contain no metal.

Removing Silver Amalgam Fillings

In the past if you had a cavity, your only choice was a silver amalgam filling.  For some patients it may be necessary to remove silver amalgam fillings, either to repair decay underneath or prevent cracking.  For other patients they choose to replace their silver fillings with composite white resin to improve the appearance of their smile.  In either case, Dr. Metcalfe utilizes the procedures and equipment necessary to remove silver amalgam fillings safely.  If you are unhappy with the look of your old fillings or concerned with the safety of the amalgam fillings, you can rest assured that the professionals at Ocala Dental Care can safely remove your old fillings.
