Dental Fillings - Composite, sedative and replace amalgam fillings
Dental fillings are used to repair a tooth which has a cavity. At our Lakewood dental office, we offer composite resin fillings which have a natural color to match your tooth.
A composite filling is a tooth-colored resin and glass mixture used to restore decayed teeth. Composite filling is also used to make cosmetic improvements of your smile by changing the color or reshaping disfigured teeth. Composite resins provide durable and resistance to fracture in small-size or mid-size fillings and can withstand moderate pressure from stress of chewing food. They can be used on front or back teeth and preserve natural look of your teeth.
A sedative filling is a temporary, medicated filling used to repair a decayed, cracked, or chipped tooth. Sedative fillings are temporary fillings that are intended to relieve pain and give teeth time to heal until they are ready for permanent restoration. When teeth have extensive decay and are approaching the pulp (nerve), a temporary filling can be placed to soothe the pulp and determine possible treatment options.
Replace Failing Amalgam Fillings
Although we are able to perform all treatments that are available in a mercury-free office, we still offer silver amalgam fillings. Amalgam restorations many times are more cost effective for the patient. When it comes to replacing amalgam fillings, the doctor will check your teeth for failing amalgam fillings during a routine checkup to determine the course of action needed.
