When tooth decay happens, you need the right treatment options to prevent further decay and eliminate pain and sensitivity. We provide composite fillings to treat tooth decay, ensuring your oral health and comfort.
Composite fillings are a great option for restoring teeth affected by tooth decay. We use a tooth-colored composite resin to fill the cavity. This resin is the same color as natural teeth, so you won’t see the distinct metallic appearance that silver amalgam fillings have. They’re also strong and durable, providing lasting protection. At Smiles Family Dentistry, we only use the best quality materials in our fillings and all of our dental services. The materials we use are from trusted brands that are thoroughly researched and tested, and are well-known for their quality.
We also offer inlays and onlays. These are restorative treatments that replace the chewing surface of the tooth. Inlays cover the center of the tooth, while onlays cover the cusp as well. They’re similar to dental crowns, except they don’t replace the entire tooth.
If tooth decay eventually works its way inward, where it can affect the delicate pulp and nerve tissue, this can lead to a serious infection. Our team of dental professionals uses the latest technology and techniques to diagnose tooth infections and other dental issues quickly and effectively.
If we determine that a tooth infection requires specialized treatment, such as root canal therapy, we will refer our patients to a qualified endodontist.
We have a network of trusted dental specialists who share our commitment to patient comfort and satisfaction, and we work closely with them to ensure that our patients receive the best possible care.
A root canal treatment can restore your tooth by removing the soft tissue inside. This tissue is important during development but is not necessary for adult teeth. Removing it eliminates the risk of infection, and your tooth can then be repaired with a special type of filling. Depending on the specific tooth and the extent of the damage, you may need a dental crown following a root canal treatment.
