Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs): Tooth-Colored Fillings

How can we help you?

Choosing a family dentist is an important decision. We want you to feel confident when you choose Kinsey Smiles for your dentistry. No question is too big or small. We welcome you to call us with any concerns you might have.

Some of our most common questions are listed right here. 

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Sensitivity can occur with fillings, but we rarely experience that in our practice. During your procedure you should be completely comfortable, and we ensure this by using very high-quality local anesthetics. We also employ certain techniques and materials when placing fillings that almost completely eliminates post-treatment sensitivity.

We use only the best labs and best materials available, and we do excellent work so tooth restorations can last indefinitely. Certain factors that affect the longevity of restorative dentistry can include a patient’s home care habits, how consistent a patient is with professional care and preventive maintenance, whether or not a patient clenches or grinds their teeth, whether or not a patient smokes or has gum disease, as well as many other variables. 
 

We offer professional whitening for dark or discolored teeth. In addition, we can provide patients with Invisalign clear aligners to easily resolve crowded, crooked or rotated teeth. We also offer a variety of restorative solutions using the latest techniques and materials which can restore your teeth to a more aesthetically pleasing size, shape, and color - most commonly done using state of the art porcelain veneers or crowns. We also offer solutions for missing teeth which most commonly include dental implants or tooth colored bridges-both of which can be very aesthetic while restoring function.

Restorative dentistry can include any procedure that restores natural tooth structure. This can include fillings to restore the internal structure, and porcelain veneers to restore worn, chipped or cracked teeth. Restorative dentistry can also include crowns to cover and restore teeth back to their natural size, shape, and strength. Bridges and dental implants can be used to restore and replace missing teeth.
