What Are Fillings?
Dental cavities are a common problem that develops when bacteria erodes your enamel. Previously, cavities were filled with a material called amalgam, which is a mixture of different metals, like silver or mercury. We now know that these fillings don't fuse very well with the teeth and the mercury may be hazardous to your general health. At Miller Family Dentistry in Helena, MT, Dr. Kevin E. Miller uses tooth-colored fillings made from a composite resin to treat cavities. Dr. Miller can also remove metal fillings and apply composite resin fillings for a more reliable and better-looking treatment for cavities.
What Can I Expect from Fillings?
Receiving a filling at Miller Family Dentistry is generally a quick process. The treatment area will be numbed to minimize your discomfort. Stronger sedation methods may be discussed if you have any anxieties to help keep you relaxed during the procedure. As soon as you're prepared, the decayed enamel is removed with a special drill that Dr. Miller will choose based on the location of the cavity and the level of decay. Once the enamel is treated and the tooth is cleaned, the area will be replaced with the composite filling and set with a special light. He will then polish the filling so it matches your natural teeth.
