Do you have tooth pain? Do you suspect that you may have one or more cavities? Do you have a tooth with a filling that needs to be replaced?
We specialize in tooth fillings and do them almost every day, so please get in touch and we will be happy to schedule an appointment for you.
What are fillings?
Tooth fillings are a standard and simple solution to treat tooth decay. Whichever part of the tooth that has decayed is removed and replaced with a material that looks like it is naturally part of the tooth.
When done well, people will not even notice your fillings.
- You will receive local anesthesia so that you don’t experience any discomfort during the procedure.
- Dr. K will either use an air abrasion instrument, a laser, or a drill to remove the decayed portion of the tooth.
- When the decayed area has been removed, the cavity will be thoroughly cleaned out.
- Last, Dr. K will gradually apply the tooth colored filling and harden it with a special light. Any excess filling can be trimmed off and the remaining, filled-in tooth can be polished until it looks perfectly healthy.
If you’ve got tooth decay to any degree or it’s been awhile since your last dental checkup, contact us.
