Natural-Looking Dental Fillings Centerville
Fillings are just what they sound like: fillings for teeth! Designed to restore your smile, fillings are placed in areas of decay, fracture or cracking once the infected or decay areas have been removed. While silver fillings were quite popular decades ago, dental technology has improved since then and we now offer tooth-colored composites for a more seamless solution!Schedule Your Consultation
How Much Do Fillings Cost?
The price tag on fillings is heavily determined by which material you choose to go with. Silver amalgam is most affordable at $50-$150 per tooth. Next up is the more natural-looking compositive resin filling, which costs between $90-$250 on average. Porcelain and gold fillings are the most expensive option, hovering between $250 and $4,500. Most dental insurance plans will help cover at least some of these costs.

How Long Does It Take To Recover From A Filling?
This procedure can take as little as 10 minutes or up to an hour depending on the extent of the damage and the filling material you choose. If you choose the silver amalgam option, we ask that you hold off on chewing for at least 24 hours. The composite filling usually only needs about 2 hours of clearance time before chewing. The local anesthetic used should fade by about 3 hours post-procedure. You may experience some slight gum swelling or sensitivity to hot/cold substances. This is normal and should resolve itself within a week or so!
How Long Does A Filling Last?
With proper care, dental fillings usually last between 10 – 15 years! We use top quality materials to fill the decayed area and extreme precision to ensure a durable, comfortable and long-term solution.
