Restore your dental health with composite fillings
Cavities are small holes on the outer layer of your teeth caused by tooth decay. If left untreated, cavities grow into larger pits, leading to tooth loss. While cavities may wreak havoc on your oral health, you can stop them by getting composite dental fillings from Chacon Dental Studio, serving patients in and around Dublin, California. Are you worried about aesthetics? Don’t be. Our tooth-colored fillings have the power to fix your cavities without marring the appearance of your smile.
Composite fillings procedure
The first line of defense in fighting cavities is to prevent them in the first place. Brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and avoiding sugary and acidic foods can go a long way in cavity prevention. Unfortunately, sometimes cavities occur even after taking optimal care of your teeth. But don’t stress out. After the cavity filling procedure, we will restore your cavity-laden teeth to their healthy self.
Here is what to expect with the composite fillings procedure
- Anesthesia: We like all our patients to be as comfortable as possible during any simple or major treatment. While some fillings can be done without anesthesia, large ones need numbing of your mouth to reduce discomfort. For those who are afraid of the needle or do not like the feeling of numbness, one option we could consider is the CO2 Laser.
- Removal of the decayed part: Dr. Robert A. Chacon drills out the decayed area and cleans it thoroughly to remove any bacteria lurking.
- Placing the filling: We apply composite resin layer by layer on your prepped tooth and harden it in place using a special light.
- Polishing: You will test your bite, and if it doesn’t feel right, the dentist will reshape the filling until it feels normal. Finally, we will polish the filling to blend with your natural teeth
Unlike amalgam fillings created from a mixture of metals, our white fillings are made from a composite resin material that closely matches your natural teeth. Once in place, you will not even realize that your tooth-colored fillings are there!
