Dental fillings used to restore small areas of decay can be expected to last for many years. The larger the filling, the shorter the long term prognosis.
Dental fillings are one of the most inexpensive dental procedures. Typically, fillings are charged according to the number of surfaces of the tooth that are restored. Fillings are generally less that $500. Dental fillings are not indicated for restoring large areas of tooth structure because they are not strong enough and dental crowns may be a better choice.
Dental fillings usually only take one visit to complete. At the start of your treatment visit, Dr. Stankewitz will completely anesthetize your tooth so that you will be completely without pain. After removing all decay, the uncured filling material will be added and shaped to the cavity and a high intensity white light is used to harden it. Your visit can be expected to be about 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
