Dental Fillings San Juan Capistrano

A white (tooth colored) filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed by our dentist San Juan Capistrano and then filled with a white filling.

There are many types of filling materials available, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. You and your dentist San Juan Capistrano can discuss the best options for restoring your teeth. White fillings, along with silver amalgam fillings, are the most widely used today. Because white fillings are tooth colored, they can be closely matched to the color of existing teeth, and are more aesthetically suited for use in front teeth or the more visible areas of the teeth.

As with most dental restorations, composite fillings are not permanent and may someday have to be replaced. They are very durable, and will last many years, giving you a long lasting, beautiful smile.

Reasons for white fillings:

  • Chipped teeth.
  • Closing space between two teeth.
  • Cracked or broken teeth.
  • Decayed teeth.
  • Worn teeth.

How are white fillings placed?

White fillings are usually placed in one appointment with your dentist San Juan Capistrano. While the tooth is numb, your dentist will remove decay as necessary. The space will then be thoroughly cleaned and carefully prepared by your dentist San Juan Capistrano before the new filling is placed. If the decay was near the nerve of the tooth, a special medication will be applied for added protection. The white filling will then be precisely placed, shaped, and polished, restoring your tooth to its original shape and function.

It is normal to experience sensitivity to hot and cold when white fillings are first placed, however this will subside shortly after your tooth acclimates to the new filling.

You will be given care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Good oral hygiene practices, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new fillings.

★★★★★ Most people dread going to the dentist but Reflection's atmosphere and vibe is so relaxing and comforting. Dr. Akhavan and his staff are extremely professional. They are very friendly, passionate about their work, and politely greeted me the second I walked in the door. The office is beautiful, clean, updated, and very modern. I went in and did the new patient special which was ONLY $40. Dr. Akhavan is extremely ethical and does not diagnose unnecessary treatment plans in order to profit. I loved how he gave me a number of treatment options that best suited my financial means. I 100% recommend Dr. Akhavan and staff to anyone looking for a friendly, professional, and experienced dentist.

★★★★★ Dr. Akhavan is a wonderful dentist. I usually dread going to see a dentist but since I started going to Dr. Akhavan my experience is always pleasant. He is caring and positive and puts you at ease. He took out my top wisdom teeth and it only took her 15 minutes! It was fast and painless. My gums healed without any problems and I was eating an apple 3 days later! He is also extremely honest and won't try to push you to do any unnecessary dental work like many other dentists I have encountered. I highly recommend her! Best dentist by far!

★★★★★ I had such a wonderful experience with Doctor Akhavan. He is a perfectionist and I had a horrible experience with a prior dentist and there were issues with a particular tooth. This dentist worked wonders and I couldn't be happier with the result. I can feel confident to smile again! The office and staff are also very warm and professional. I am beyond satisfied with my experience with this dentist.
