CREATING BEAUTIFUL SMILES WITH

Dental Fillings Cedar Park TX

Regular brushing and flossing, along with dental cleanings every six months, are important for keeping the teeth and gums free of plaque. This sticky film contains bacteria that produce harmful acids. When plaque and food debris are left on the teeth for extended periods of time, the bacteria can damage the teeth enamel and create cavities, or small holes in the teeth. At Town Center Dental Cedar Park, cavities are commonly treated with dental fillings to prevent further damage.

Benefits of dental fillings

Leaving a cavity untreated can lead to an infection in the tissues within a tooth. A more invasive procedure called a root canal will then be needed to fix the tooth. Dental fillings remove the damage and replace it with a material that rebuilds the structure of the tooth to save it from an extraction. Fillings can also be used to repair damage caused by teeth grinding or to replace part of a broken tooth.

Types of fillings

Dental fillings in Cedar Park, TX can be made of a variety of materials, such as amalgam, composite, cast gold, porcelain, and glass ionomer. Each material has its own benefits. The material selected by your dentist at Town Center Dental Cedar Park will depend on the location of the cavity, whether you have any allergies to any materials, and cost. The most common material used is composite because it is affordable but versatile and strong.

Process of Dental Fillings in Cedar Park, TX

A cavity is normally found during a routine exam and can usually be treated in the same appointment. Your dentist may take an x-ray to see the full extent of the decay. To treat it, the tooth will have to be anesthetized. Once numbed, your dentist will remove the decay and clean the tooth. The filling material is applied in layers to strengthen the filling. Each layer will be hardened (cured) with a special light as it is applied. The filling material will be trimmed and polished to ensure that it fits with the surrounding teeth.
