Filling Dentists Plymouth, Ann Arbor, And Clarkston MI

Suspect you have cavities? Our dentists in Clarkston, Plymouth, and Ann Arbor, MI, may recommend fillings to restore your smile. As the name suggests, a dental filling restores the appearance and function of your tooth after we remove the decay. The filling procedure takes one appointment and can last several years with proper care.

Here’s what else you should know about the filling procedure at Michigan Main Street Dentistry.

What Can I Expect When Getting a Filling?

We’ll numb your tooth and surrounding tissue with a local anesthetic. We may also offer laughing gas sedation to help you feel more relaxed and at ease while you’re sitting in the dental chair. Laughing gas is a great option for anyone who may feel anxious about receiving dental treatment.

Once you’re numb and comfortable, one of our dentists will remove the decayed tooth structure. Next, they’ll fill the remaining hole with composite resin that matches the color of your enamel. That way, you won’t be able to tell where the cavity filling ends and the tooth begins. The result is a beautiful healthy smile you’ll be proud to show off to the world. Composite resin fillings are both effective and discreet.

What Can I Expect After My Appointment?

You can expect the area to be numb for a few hours after your appointment. During this time, you’ll need to exercise caution while eating to avoid biting the insides of your cheeks. You’ll also need to avoid hot drinks, such as coffee, to avoid burning your mouth while you’re still numb.
