After receiving your composite filling, it is not unusual to experience some sensitivity. Additionally, the shade of the filling can change slightly if you consume staining foods and drinks such as coffee and tea. To prevent this, some of our patients ask that we place a clear plastic coating over the filling to maintain its colour. Although composites are attached to your tooth, which helps to support the remaining tooth structure, prevent breakage, and insulate the nerves from excessive temperature changes, we believe that prevention is the best treatment. You can significantly reduce your risk of cavities and other dental problems by simply brushing your teeth at least twice a day, flossing daily, proper nutrition with minimal sugar intake.
Thanks to new technology and advances in adhesive dentistry, patients have better options. Natural-looking, tooth-colored fillings called resin composite provide an aesthetically pleasing alternative to traditional, silver-colored, amalgam ones.
Hey. I was looking for a natural looking tooth fillings treatment and my family dentist in Stony Plain suggested white fillings. But the problem is I am a coffee addict. Is it okay to consume coffee after undergoing this treatment? Will it stain my teeth?
