Cosmetic Dental Fillings

Cavities can happen to anyone.

There’s no need to feel embarrassed about having a cavity. Roughly 91% of people will deal with tooth decay at some point in their life and need a dental filling. Even our dentists have dealt with a cavity or two of their own! What matters is that you spot and stop the decay before it causes big problems. That’s what we’re here for. With early detection technology, advanced imaging, and safe filling materials, getting a dental filling at Pax Dental is fast, safe, and comfortable.

 

Facts about fillings:

  • We use tooth-colored filling materials that are 100% non-toxic, containing no mercury and no metal.

  • Our high-tech methods require very little removal of healthy tooth structure.

  • Thanks to precise care, your tooth filling will blend perfectly with your natural smile and last for decades.

 

Does getting a dental filling hurt?

Nope! We’ll start by applying a numbing gel, then give you a local anesthetic which requires just the smallest of pokes. After that, your mouth will be numb and you’ll be comfortable while we work. Remember: our office follows the golden rule — we wouldn’t want to be in pain so we’ll make sure you’re not, either!

How much will the filling cost?

The cost of a tooth filling will vary depending on factors like whether or not you have dental insurance or participate in a savings plan, what kind of insurance you have, and the size and number of fillings you require.

How do you prevent cavities?

Good brushing and flossing habits combined with regular visits to your dentist are the best way to prevent tooth decay. Come see us every 6 months and keep cavities away!
