We provide dental fillings to repair cavities and other minor damage. Our practice offers high-quality composite fillings that look natural and provide exceptional performance.
A dental filling is a simple restoration procedure designed to repair teeth with cavities and minor damage. A cavity is a small hole or void that has developed on a tooth’s surface. The most common cause of a cavity is prolonged exposure to tartar, acids and bacteria. Although cavities should be taken seriously, they do not usually lead to any major problems if they are treated quickly. When a cavity is left untreated, it can grow larger over time. This can lead to major damage when bacteria are able to access the tooth’s inner structure and cause an infection. Once that happens, a root canal procedure will be required to save the tooth.
We can treat most cavities using fillings. These restorations involve applying a special substance to the damage or decayed tooth. This will seal off any voids or openings, and it will restore the tooth’s strength and integrity. This will help prevent any future deterioration or decay. The recipient will also have no trouble using the tooth to chew tough foods, and they can care for the restoration in the same manner as their untreated teeth.
Broadway Dental specializes in composite dental fillings. A composite filling is comprised of a blended mixture of silica fillers and plastic resins. The mixture is specifically designed to offer impressive strength, while still remaining incredibly flexible. This makes it perfect for treating damaged teeth, and the overall restoration will last a very long time with proper care.
Every filling we provide is carefully shaped to resemble a natural tooth. We can even adjust the shade of the filling resin slightly to better resemble the patient’s existing teeth. Our fillings are also extremely safe, as they release no harmful metals or other toxic substances into the body.
When providing a filling, we follow a careful process. We start by removing any decay and old filling material from the tooth. Once the tooth is cleaned out, we can then begin applying the composite filling substance. This will seal off any voids or openings. We then allow the substance to harden by exposing it to a special light. We do this to provide the damaged tooth with much-needed strength and structure. The last step is to polish and shape the tooth so that the structure can look as natural as possible. We will then check the patient’s bite and make sure the tooth functions properly.
