Are You Suffering From Cavity? Then Tooth Fillings Can Be The Best Solution! Visit Brier Creek Smiles Dentistry Today!

Tooth fillings, also known as dental fillings, play a critical role during the treatment of cavities. It helps in restoring the tooth and the chewing ability as a whole in patients having decayed teeth. At Brier Creek Smiles Dentistry, our dentist Dr Doan Tran removes the decayed tooth, cleans the infected area, and then fills the cleaned cavity with a filling material.

In a dental filling procedure, the spaces through which the bacteria enter are closed by means of tooth fillings. This prevents the spread of bacteria inside the mouth. So if you are a patient of extensive decay, then make sure to visit Brier Creek Smiles Dentistry today!


What Are The Different Types Of Tooth fillings Used?

Our expert dental team understands the fact that every patient has their own unique requirements. Our team after conducting a thorough dental checkup will let you know the type of filling which will suit you the best, its cost, and the procedure we will follow. Here are some common fillings that are used –

  • Composite Resins –Composite Resin is a common type of dental filling. They are custom-made and are matched to the color of your teeth. We generally use this kind of filling if you request us to make your teeth look naturally appealing.
  • Porcelain Fillings -Porcelain fillings are also known as inlays. The best thing about this kind of dental filling is, they can be assembled and matched to the color of the teeth. Also, it doesn’t wear down easily.

What Does A Tooth Filling Procedure Involve?

If you are a victim of extensive tooth decay, then tooth filling is the best choice for you! Having a fair bit of idea about the procedure will help you overcome mental stress. At Brier Creek Smiles Dentistry, we first administer local anaesthesia. This helps us to numb the area around the affected tooth. Then, we remove the decayed part of the tooth. The next process involves preparing the space so that the filling can be placed.

Some materials used for filling require additional work. For example, fillings that match the color of the tooth are required to be applied in layers with every layer hardened by means of a special light beam. After this, we proceed to shape it for achieving the desired result.

Why Do We Prefer Dental Implants Over Other Dental Prosthetics?

  • They are strong, and therefore, can easily withstand the forces of chewing.
  • They can be custom-made to match the color of the teeth.
  • They can be bonded directly onto the tooth, thereby making it strong and attractive.
