Fillings and How They Work

Learn about how dental fillings in Bellflower work

Dental fillings are needed as a response to tooth decay, but how does tooth decay happen? The mouth is full of different bacteria, and our teeth, gums and tongues are where the bacteria live. There are good types of bacteria and bad types of bacteria. The bad bacteria are what causes tooth decay in Bellflower, and are what eats away at your teeth. When bad bacteria are left in the mouth too long it pairs with the sugars you are putting in your mouth, and creates an acid. Over time the acid eats away at your teeth causing a hole, or dental cavity. If you or a family member is experiencing pain because of tooth decay, please give us a call at (323) 486-6579 so we can help! Appointment scheduling is available 24/7 by phone, or by clicking the 'appointments' button below.

What You Should Know About Dental Fillings

Our team can help you get the best dental fillings in Bellflower

A lot of the time a dental filling in Bellflower is the first time someone has actually experienced dental work other than a regular cleaning. When this is the case, a dental filling can be quite frightening if you don’t know what to expect. However, there isn’t anything to worry about because a filling is typically painless, with the exception of cavities close to your gum line. With that being said, our professional and caring staff here at Bellflower Dental Group will do what it takes to make sure you are completely comfortable, even if it requires sedation. We want you to get the dental treatment you need in the most comfortable way possible. When it comes to the length of time it takes to fill a cavity, the actual filling process takes about 15 minutes. The area around the decayed tooth will be numbed with a gel before the filling takes place. Once your filling is completed, depending on the filling material, your filling should be expected to last at least 5 years, and in most cases many years longer. The important thing to remember is to take care of your teeth by brushing, flossing and getting your regular dental cleanings twice a year. This will help you defend your mouth from tooth decay in Bellflower, and also prevent more dental cavities from occurring. If you have any questions about tooth decay or dental fillings, please feel free to chat with us below or call us at (323) 486-6579. We would love to help!

Dental fillings in Bellflower are covered by most dental insurance plans

"I have many patients ask me about the cost of dental fillings, and I have learned that many do not know that filling a dental cavity is covered by most dental health insurance plans. Even though the cost of getting a filling can vary depending on its size, location and materials used, fillings are one of the least costly dental services available. If the cost of treatment is keeping you from getting the oral health care you need, please give us a call, and our office team will gladly discuss the best options for you! "
