Dental Fillings in Charlotte, nc.

A dental filling is a dental procedure used to restore part of a tooth that has been damaged by decay.

The goal with a filling is to remove the decayed area, clean it well, and “fill” the space with a material, returning the tooth to its normal shape and, hopefully, normal function.

There are a number of materials that can be used for a tooth filling. Composite (white, or shaded to match the color of your remaining teeth) is the most common material used at our practice.

How does my dentist know I need a filling?

The most obvious signs of a cavity or decay are pain or sensitivity around the affected area, or food suddenly getting caught between teeth. You should call your dentist as soon as you feel pain or when cold drinks or hot foods cause you to jump with discomfort or tingling.

Because pain occurs when a cavity is already fairly large, it’s important to be seen quickly when you feel pain. We leave time in our schedules for emergency appointments!

When you get to our office, we will perform some simple tests.

Visual Assessment: Our dentist will do a visual assessment and look around your mouth, most carefully around the area where you complain of pain. At this point, they are looking for the most obvious signs of a cavity: cracks, discoloration, white colored lesions, or even rough parts or “spots” on the outside of your teeth.

X-Rays: After the dentist finishes a visual examination and has palpated around the inside of your mouth, they will most likely have a set of dental x-rays taken. These images give the most in-depth look at your teeth. They allow the dentist to determine if there is, in fact, a cavity, as well as the size and severity of any cavities present.

An x-ray will give our dentist the most accurate picture of what’s needed when deciding between a filling or a more drastic treatment, like a root canal.

Diagnosis and Treatment Plan: At this point in the examination, you will be given a synopsis of the dentist’s findings and a course of action.

  • I am scared of the dentist but the doctor and staff quickly put me at ease. Very professional and very caring. Took x-rays and developed a treatment plan for me. I had 2 teeth removed and they were very thorough and accommodating in the process. Highly recommend! I had called at least 10 other dental offices and these were the only kind people I spoke with and they helped me the same day!
