DENTAL FILLINGS

Dental fillings are a common dental procedure used to repair tooth damage from cavities, teeth grinding, or other tooth trauma.

PROCEDURE INFORMATION

Dental Fillings

Fillings are the most common and affordable dental restorative procedure for both children and adults. They are used to repair tooth damage commonly caused by fracture or decay. By placing a filling, we reduce the amount of bacteria in a patient’s mouth, extend the life of the tooth, and delay the need for additional dental work indefinitely.

Determining If You Need Dental Fillings

Before you receive dental fillings, our practitioner evaluates your teeth using a visual exam and a dental pick. In some cases, our dentist also conducts x-rays to get an image of the inside of your teeth. This allows our dentist to detect cavities lurking underneath the surface of your tooth. During this portion of your exam, our dental practitioner also looks for any damage or wear and tear that should be addressed. If a dentist doesn’t address these issues, you could develop more extensive and expensive problems in the future.

Composite vs. Metal Fillings

The two most common choices for fillings are composite fillings and amalgam fillings. Composite fillings are made of plastic and ceramic compounds that match the color of your teeth while amalgam fillings are a silver color. At Embrace Dental in Sparks, NV, we offer patients tooth-colored composite fillings instead of metal fillings. The composite fillings, which match the natural color of your teeth, are almost impossible to notice and when well-placed, last a long time with proper care.

What to Expect When You Get Dental Fillings

Receiving dental fillings in Sparks, NV is a relatively simple process. We give you a local anesthetic and possibly another medication to keep you relaxed if you have a fear of the dentist. We explain the process and help you determine the best solution for you prior to your appointment. Next, our dentist removes the decay from your tooth using a dental handpiece and places the tooth-colored composite filling to restore your tooth structure.
