About Tooth-Colored Fillings
With the current technology of dental adhesion and resin materials, tooth colored restorations match the teeth more naturally than metal-colored filling. There are many studies showing that when these advanced restorations are properly placed there are a number of advantages such as strength, wear, function and appearance.

"It is always nice to know that the staff at Drs. Langenbach and Thomas's practice will be competent and thorough, from the regular cleaning to more involved procedures and they are up-to-date on the most current practices. Computerized x-rays, crowns made in-house, fillings, night guards, etc. Our entire family ages 11 and up see both dentists and are familiar with the hygienists and office staff by first name. We have been patients since they took over the practice from Dr. Chisum. "- T. / Demandforce / Jun 13, 2012

What to Expect
The dentist offers patients a one-of-a-kind experience when undergoing a filling procedure. Prior to the procedure, the patient’s tooth is photographed and measured to create a filling that is comfortable and matches the shade of their tooth. The filling, made of resin, is then bonded to the tooth. The procedure seeks to create a filling that perfectly fits your tooth and covers the entire area that needs protection. This procedure can cause minor pain and discomfort, so most patients will not be able to immediately return to their regular routines.
Following filling procedure, patients will need time, at least 1 – 3 hours, to allow their anesthesia to wear off before they can leave the office. Patients should be cautious in talking or chewing so they do not bite the inside of their mouth or tongue while the area is numb. The gums may also be tender or sore at the injection site, but this will subside in a day or so. The tooth or teeth will be sensitive to hot or cold liquids or food for a short time, this is normal and temporary. Should patients feel any extreme discomfort or unevenness in the tooth after the anesthesia has worn off, please call our office immediately. Patients should not expect to receive any medication or special instructions unless directed by the dentist during their consultation or after surgery.
Like other dental procedures, the cost of a tooth-colored filling is dependent upon the amount of work that needs to be done and the materials needed. The average cost for a filling typically ranges between $225 – $500 per tooth. Patients should contact their insurance company prior to visiting our office, to inquire if this procedure is covered within their policy. For those without insurance or looking to pay the cost out of pocket, payment options can be discussed during consultation.
