Rest Easy Knowing Your Smile Looks Attractive

If teeth fillings make you think of old-fashioned silver fillings that stand out, you’ll be pleasantly surprised that all our fillings are metal-free. When you talk, laugh, or eat, others only see a natural-looking tooth; they won’t notice your filling. You’ll have full confidence that your smile looks the best it can.

Depending on your situation, we may use some of the advanced equipment that our office features:

  • Digital X-rays that emit only a fraction of the radiation that traditional X-rays do
  • Intraoral cameras that allow you to clearly see the inside of your mouth on a screen
  • Digital impressions that avoid the goopy mess of traditional impressions

You’ll have two choices for your dental filling:

  • Tooth-colored composite resin that can be sculpted into just the right shape to fill the void left by tooth decay
  • A porcelain filling made by our lab partner that will provide beauty and strength to repair your tooth

We’ll help you decide which option will work best for your circumstances. Sometimes, a crown is needed if the decay is advanced. Rest assured, your treatment plan will always take your best interests into consideration. We want you perfectly satisfied with your new restoration!

Call us today at 281-643-0316 if you think you might need Houston tooth fillings, or schedule online. We’re ready to help you smile with confidence again!

Common Questions About Tooth Fillings

What tooth fillings are safe?

All dental fillings are safe for most patients. However, some studies have raised concerns about the long-term health impact of mercury, which is used in amalgam fillings. Both the FDA and the American Dental Association say mercury in fillings is safe. However, mercury isn’t a concern at all with the two kinds of fillings we use: composite and porcelain.

How long do tooth fillings last?

The answer varies, depending on many factors including the kind of filling used and its location in your mouth. While metal fillings typically last longer than non-metal ones, you can expect our fillings made of durable materials like composite and porcelain to last at least five years – and often many years longer than that. Following good oral hygiene practices at home and visiting us regularly for professional cleanings will help extend the life of your fillings.

Are tooth fillings painful?

Getting a tooth filled does not have to be a painful experience. Your dentist and staff at Copperfield Dentistry will make sure that your procedure goes smoothly and comfortably. We’ll first use a local anesthetic to ensure that the area around the tooth is completely numb. We also offer three relaxing forms of sedation if you need a little extra help getting comfortable.
