Dental Fillings in Alice, TX
The Solution to Restore Tooth Functionality & Comfort
At Dental World, our goal is to give you a smile that you’re proud to show off. One common dental service we offer is dental fillings, which are used to fill cavities. This treatment helps both child and adult patients preserve their healthy, beautiful teeth while preventing further damage and tooth decay. The best part is that these dental fillings will be virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth because they are tooth-colored and shade-matched to surrounding teeth. We also replace silver fillings with tooth-colored restorations, if you are interested and a good candidate for it.
The Process of Getting a Dental Filling
When our staff determines your treatment should include a dental filling, we will do all we can to make sure you’re comfortable before we begin the process. You will be given numbing medication so you don’t feel pain, only pressure, during the filling. Next, the tooth to be filled is isolated from saliva to keep it dry. Any decay is carefully and thoroughly removed before the tooth gets a bonding agent followed by a composite resin that is shaped to resemble a natural tooth. Materials are then hardened with a special dental light. Once your restoration is complete, the filling is smoothed and polished.
If your tooth has become too damaged or decay for a dental filling to remedy the issue, you may be better suited for a root canal followed by dental crown placement. If the tooth is more severely decayed or fractured, our dentist may recommend tooth extraction followed by dental implant and crown placement.
