Tooth-colored Fillings

At Prescott Family Dentistry, we offer multiple ways to repair your smile in the most natural-looking ways. One of these solutions comes in the form of tooth-colored fillings.

Dental fillings are used to restore a damaged tooth to its normal function and shape. Unlike traditional metallic fillings, tooth-colored fillings are made to match the natural color of your teeth. Before the procedure for the filling starts, the decayed tooth material has to be taken out, and the area is thoroughly cleaned and then filled with the filling material.

Steps to getting a dental filling

The first step is to numb the area around the tooth to be filled. This is done using local anesthesia. Next, the decayed area is removed using a drill, air abrasion instrument or laser. After the area is free of all decay, the space is filled, and finished by polishing.

After receiving a filling, your tooth may become sensitive to pressure, air, sweet foods or cold temperatures. In most cases, sensitivity will only last for over one week to two weeks. Sometimes, the filling might be too high and could cause pain after the effect of the anesthesia wears off. If this happens, please reach out to us as soon as possible to adjust or reduce the height of the filling.

Our Happy Customers

"I have nothing but fantastic things to say about this practice. The entire office is just phenomenal - everyone is warm, welcoming, personable, and very customer service oriented. They all remember you when you come in, they engage in friendly conversation and above all, strive to make you feel comfortable. Dr. Prescott is simply wonderful and there is nothing bad that I can say about my experiences with him. My husband and children are also patients, and although we relocated from Fort Mill,SC to Waxhaw, NC it is totally worth the drive to continue under Dr. Prescott's care. I've even referred several of my new neighbors to the practice... they all thought I was nuts to be referring them so far down the road. After their visits, they all raved about Dr. Prescott and his staff and thanked me for referring them. BTW - my kids are 14, 15 and almost 4. Dr. Prescott & team finds a way to connect with each of them despite the age differences. My youngest had his first cleaning here and can't wait to go back to the "mouth doctor"!!"
