Tooth-Colored Fillings in Peoria, AZ
What Are Tooth-Colored Fillings?
Dental cavities are a common problem that are created when bacteria eat away at your dental enamel. Previously, cavities were treated with a material called amalgam, which is a combination of metals, such as silver or mercury. We now know that amalgam fillings don't fuse very well with the enamel and the mercury is dangerous to your overall health. At Reflections Dental in Peoria, AZ, Dr. Donald Hildebrandt offers tooth-colored fillings made with composite resin to fill cavities and protect the tooth. Dr. Hildebrandt can also remove old metal fillings and replace them with composite resin fillings for a more reliable and better-looking treatment for cavities.
What Can I Expect from Tooth-Colored Fillings?
Receiving a filling at Reflections Dental is usually an easy treatment. The area surrounding the cavity will be numbed to help you feel more comfortable. Other forms of sedation may be considered if you have any fears or anxieties to help keep you relaxed. As soon as you are ready, the decayed enamel can be removed with a dental drill that Dr. Hildebrandt will select based on where the cavity is located and the level of decay. Once the enamel is removed and the tooth is cleaned, the area will be replaced with the composite material and set. Dr. Hildebrandt will smooth the filling material so it feels comfortable and matches your other teeth.
