Dental Fillings

Even when we do our best to take care of our teeth and gums, sometimes cavities arise and dental fillings are necessary. Cavities can occur anywhere along the surface of the tooth, but the most common locations are within the grooves of the teeth and in between teeth where flossing can help to prevent decay.

Teeth Filling Procedure

In order to replace tooth structure that is lost from decay, your dentist will fill the cavity with a synthetic, naturally-colored composite material. Once the composite has set, your dentist will file and contour the new material to look and feel the same as a patient’s natural bite. Tooth fillings are incredibly important for halting decay that is already happening in the tooth. If you suspect you might have a cavity, it is important to visit your dentist to fill the cavity before the decay goes too far and more extensive and expensive procedures are necessary.

The teeth filling procedure comprises four steps to restore teeth to a healthy state.

  • Tooth Preparation. Decay is removed from the tooth, leaving a prepared area that will be filled.
  • Bonding Material Applied. A special bonding material is applied to the prepared tooth so that the filling material adheres to the tooth.
  • Curing Light Used to Set the Bonding Fluid. This special light is used to set the bonding fluid.
  • Filling Material Applied, Shaped, and Set. The dentist will apply the filling material to the prepared tooth, shape it to the contours of the tooth, set it into place with the curing light, and polish the tooth to give it a similar sheen to your other teeth.

Champagne Family Dentistry uses only highest quality composite fillings. Composite fillings are made from durable synthetic material, restore teeth that have decayed, and look more like the natural color of teeth. Small cavities can be filled using composite fillings that look much like the surface of your tooth. Composite material is whitish in color and closely matches the natural color of your teeth.

Our trusted dental care teams at Champagne Family Dentistry in Sparks, NV love helping dental patients restore their teeth to a healthy state. Fillings are extremely common, and the procedure usually only requires a few minutes. Our years of experience and sophisticated dental techniques mean that our patients will get any required fillings quickly, safely and with minimal pain or discomfort.

Aside from the actual filling procedure, it is important to see your dentist regularly so that cavities can be detected and treated early to stop the decay from going deeper into the tooth’s structure, which could require more extensive dental treatment.
