How to Know If You Need a Filling
Dr. Mannas will recommend that a patient have a tooth filled if the tooth is showing signs of decay. Since tooth decay often has no symptoms whatsoever, you may not know whether or not you need a filling until X-rays are taken during your dental exam. As people age, many times their old fillings need to be replaced. Whether you need a new filling or need to have an old filling replaced, Dr. Mannas uses a modern composite material that results in completely natural-looking teeth. With this type of material, fillings are nearly invisible!
About the Procedure
The first step involved in getting a filling involves making sure that the patient won’t feel any discomfort during the procedure. Dr. Mannas will discuss the different alternatives available to ensure that the patient won’t feel a thing during the procedure. Next, Dr. Mannas will remove the decayed portion of the tooth, clean the area, and apply the composite filling material. Not only is the composite material the same color as your natural teeth, but it’s also extremely strong. Composite fillings will normally last for decades under normal wear and tear. Ask Dr. Mannas for more information about tooth-colored fillings.
