If your teeth have been cracked, decayed, or injured, our team may recommend a dental filling for you. Dental fillings are one of the most common restorative services Dr. Howard provides. If a filling can help your smile, our dentists will:
• Remove the damaged or decayed portion
• Clean and sanitize the remaining tooth
• Fill your tooth one layer at a time, giving each layer sufficient time to dry. Our team may use a specialized laser to dry the filling and reduce the amount of time necessary.
At Blissful Dental, our team is proud to offer you and your family composite fillings. These fillings—which are also known as white or tooth-colored fillings—are made from a combination of fine glass and plastic. One of the main benefits of this type of filling is the fact that they can be made to carefully match your smile’s color and tone. After the tooth is filled, our dentists can shape the filling to match the shape of your tooth. Another key benefit of dental fillings is the fact that they can restore your mouth to its ideal comfort and function. If you would like any additional information about the benefits of a dental filling in Lanham, Maryland, we invite you to contact us today.
