What are Dental Fillings?
Our Spring Branch dentists use dental fillings to repair damaged teeth and restore their shape and functionality. A filling is put into one or more of your natural teeth and custom-made to fit perfectly and restore the tooth’s structure to as close to normal function as possible. The material is strong, resilient, and designed to resist tooth decay. Tooth fillings are custom made and often are made from metal or porcelain with many different color options.
Dental fillings also provide a way to replace missing teeth or preserve teeth that have been lost due to trauma. The filling will restore the appearance of your smile and give you back your confidence while you wait for the missing tooth to be restored.
What Do Dental Fillings Treat?
Tooth decay is one of the most common reasons for needing to have a filling placed. The bacteria that live in your mouth can build up on your teeth and form plaque. Over time, this plaque and the bacterial waste produced can cause acid damage to your teeth leading to decay.
Tooth decay isn’t confined just to molars and back teeth; it is possible on any teeth in your mouth if you don’t practice good, consistent brushing and flossing habits. At Spring Branch Dental Group, you’ll find that we honor the fact that our patients come from all walks of life and have differing levels of adherence to dental care practices.
The good news is that we offer a variety of dental fillings in Spring Branch that you can use to restore the shape and function of your teeth. Call us today at (832) 548-1533 to schedule an appointment with us at Spring Branch Dental Group.
The Dental Filling Treatment Procedure
The process of getting a dental filling is straightforward and does not require a complex treatment plan in most cases. Our dental filling experts in Spring Branch make sure that you are comfortable before we begin the procedure, and pain-free during the process.
Your dentist first removes any decay or damage to the surface of the tooth and then cleans and prepares the affected area for the filling material. Next, we’ll fill in any deep holes or gaps and then finish by smoothing out the surface for a neat and smooth appearance. The procedure is completely painless and doesn’t require any uncomfortable monitoring. You will not be asked to take any medication before the treatment, and you may resume your normal activities immediately after.
All of this is done in about one to three visits, depending on the severity of your dental problem. As with any dental procedure, we recommend that you practice good oral hygiene habits to keep your teeth healthy over time.
