FAQs about Fillings

What does a dental filling do?

We can suggest different types of fillings if decay has compromised the integrity, health, and function of your tooth. The likelihood that you have a cavity increases with the severity of the decay.

Cavities are caused when the enamel on your teeth has weakened and a hole has formed. If you encounter any of the following signs, you might have a cavity:

  • Tooth pain that is constant and unexplained
  • Increased sensitivity of teeth
  • Teeth with holes or pits

With the use of cavity fillings, your dentist can repair the contour of your tooth and get rid of any decay.

How are fillings put in place?

Your dentist at Scottsdale Dental Bottega will initially begin by treating the damaged tooth for decay and cleaning the treatment area with specialized dental instruments.

Your dentist will often seal the region after cleaning the area and filling the cavity space with a tooth-colored filling.

How do I choose the right filler material?

Options for dental fillings that your dentist may recommend include composite resins or a porcelain or ceramic base.

Before selecting a material, your dentist assesses the following things when you arrive for your appointment:

  • The cavity’s location
  • Tooth function
  • The extent of the tooth’s deterioration
  • Your sensitivities to different chemicals

You can move forward with your cavity-filling procedure after your dentist has taken these variables into account.

What variations exist between the filler materials?

Each filler substance has a unique set of benefits:

composite resins

You won’t be able to identify the tooth that has a cavity since composite resin fillings are made to blend in with the color of your natural teeth.


Onlays and inlays made of porcelain are created to order and cemented into place on your teeth. Porcelain fillings look just like composite resin fillings do, but they are considerably better at resisting stains.
