▼Is the filling process painful?
The filling process itself is not painful, most dentists use a local anesthetic to numb the area around the affected tooth. Some patients may experience some mild discomfort or sensitivity after the procedure, but this is usually temporary and can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.
▼Can fillings be matched to the color of my teeth?
Yes, composite fillings can be custom-tinted to match the color of your natural teeth. This makes them virtually invisible, so you can smile with confidence after your filling procedure.
▼Is it safe to get a filling during pregnancy?
It is generally safe to get a filling during pregnancy, but it is always best to consult with your dentist, before undergoing any dental procedures. Your dentist can assess your individual needs and help you make the best decision for your health and the health of your baby.
