Our Tooth Fillings in Warrenton, VA Look Beautiful

At Drs. Yung & Jelinek, we’ve been saving smiles with tooth fillings in Warrenton for over 30 years. We offer tooth-colored composite resin fillings that blend in with your other teeth – there are no ugly silver fillings for others to see.

Without proper oral hygiene, dental decay penetrates your tooth’s enamel over time and causes a cavity. Dental fillings are an effective way to fill in the cavity, stop decay, and restore your tooth.

Here are some ways your smile will benefit from non-metal fillings in our office:

  • You’ll save your tooth from further damage and avoid extraction.
  • You’ll eliminate tooth pain and make it easier to bite and chew again.
  • You’ll restore your tooth’s natural function and shape with a non-metal filling.
  • You’ll avoid the additional time and cost of more extensive procedures, such as root canal treatment.

Think you might have a cavity? Save your tooth and keep your smile healthy by calling our office to schedule a dental exam: 540-386-1943. We’re easy to find – near the intersection of North Hill Drive and Blackwell Road, just down the street from Cornerstone Baptist Church.

Stay Comfortable While We Place a Composite Filling

Our dentists love to help our patients look and feel better. A filling is a great way to stop dental discomfort and help you smile confidently again. If we find a cavity, here’s what we’ll do to restore your tooth:

  • Numb your mouth so you don’t feel pain
  • Gently remove the decay and damaged tooth material
  • Clean the area to prepare it for the filling
  • Place a discreet, composite resin filling to seal the area and prevent further decay

While we work, you can relax in one of our private care rooms with comforts like a pillow and headphones. Sedation is available if you’re anxious about your procedure.

You can help keep tooth decay away with good dental habits. Brush your teeth twice a day – usually morning and evening – and floss daily. Also, visit our Warrenton office every six months for regular cleanings and exams. We’ll gently clean cavity-causing plaque and bacteria from your teeth and check for any signs of decay.

Restore your teeth and your smile with great-looking tooth fillings in Warrenton! Call us today at 540-386-1943 for an appointment. You can also schedule online if you prefer.

Common Questions About Tooth Fillings

What are white tooth fillings made of?

White tooth fillings are made of composite resin, a blend of ceramic and plastic. Unlike amalgam fillings, which are made of a blend of metals, they can be matched to the color of your other teeth so they aren’t noticeable in your smile. They also cause fewer allergy issues than amalgam.

What tooth fillings are safe?

All dental fillings are safe for most patients. However, some studies have raised concerns about the long-term health impact of mercury, which is used in amalgam fillings. Both the FDA and the American Dental Association say mercury in fillings is safe. However, mercury isn’t a concern at all with our composite fillings.

How long do tooth fillings last?

The life of fillings will vary, depending on their location and your oral hygiene, among other factors. A composite filling typically lasts from five to 10 years. No filling is designed to last a lifetime. You can maximize the life span of any filling by brushing and flossing every day and visiting us at least twice a year for professional cleanings.

How soon after I get a filling can I eat?

Because we use composite fillings, there’s no need to wait to eat after your appointment. The reason is the blue UV light we use hardens the composite material right away. However, if your mouth still feels a bit numb, we may recommend that you wait at least a couple of hours before eating. We’ll discuss any specific after-care instructions for you to know at the end of your appointment.
