During the treatment process,Dr.Miski will use resin or porcelain material for the filling and it will be shaded to match the color of the patient’s natural tooth. Once the area with tooth decay is cleaned, a filling will be created and bonded to the tooth. Typically, resin fillings can last at least 15 years if the patient practices good hygiene, including regular brushing and flossing.
Will They Last?
If the patient practices good oral hygiene with brushing, flossing and professional teeth cleanings, tooth-colored dental fillings typically last for 15 years or longer.
Special Care For Fillings?
Although there are no special care instructions for tooth-colored dental fillings, it is important for patients to practice good oral hygiene to maintain their filling, as well as prevent any further damage to the teeth. Patients are asked to brush and floss daily and schedule regular dental exams and cleanings.
Can I Replace Metal Fillings?
Yes. If you would like to get rid of your metal fillings, we can remove the old filling and replace it with a tooth-colored filling. This is usually seen as a cosmetic dental treatment. Schedule a consultation with Dr.Miski to learn more about the metal filling removal process.
