When You Need a Natural-Looking Solution for Decayed or Damaged Teeth
Many people have tooth decay, and the first sign of it may be a sudden twinge you can’t explain, which could indicate you need a filling for a cavity. This chronic health condition can be remedied with restorative dentistry, especially through the use of dental fillings. Smile Experts uses this predictable, reliable procedure to create long-lasting restorations. These tooth-colored fillings are appropriate for patients with cavities, or chipped or cracked teeth.
The Steps Involved in a Dental Filling Appointment
During your dental filling appointment, we will do the following basic steps:
- Isolate the tooth from saliva to keep it dry
- Remove any dental decay
- Apply an etchant and bonding agent
- Apply a composite resin
- Use a special light to harden each layer of the material
- Shape the resin to resemble a natural tooth
- Smooth and polish the restoration to accommodate your bite
Am I a Candidate for Dental Fillings?
Some patients with tooth decay require dental fillings, but others need more in-depth treatment if they decay is severe and the remaining structure of the tooth cannot be restored this way. In this case, we recommend either root canals or dental implants which are then capped with a dental crown. We can discuss your options with you so you are prepared for what to expect when it comes to treatment and costs.
