During this procedure, the decayed portion of a tooth is removed and the tooth is cleaned and sealed. The area removed due to decay is then filled with a material such as gold, porcelain, amalgam or composite. Failure to place a filling in a tooth that is decayed can lead to further decay and even tooth loss.
Dental fillings do not have to be painful. However, failure to treat tooth decay can be very painful. Our dentists offer laughing gas and local anesthetic to keep patients relaxed while receiving dental fillings. We also offer patient comfort items such as blankets and chairside computers to improve the patient experience.
Norcross Dental Associates offers fillings in both porcelain and composite that are natural in color and hard to detect. Natural-looking fillings enable our dentists to effectively fix teeth that are decayed without compromising the appearance of your smile.
If you are in need of a dental filling, don’t risk your oral health by putting off treatment. Contact our office at Norcross Dental Associates today to schedule an appointment. We look forward to serving you and your family.
