DENTAL FILLINGS IN KATY, TX
Get your cavities protected by our dentist at Katy, TX
Cavities need to be filled simply because otherwise the tooth remains left unprotected. If the hollow space (especially those on the chewing surface of your molars, where they mostly appear) is not sealed with some filling material, the bacterial infection might reach up to the roots and damage the entire tooth leading to the need of an extraction!
In order to avoid such dire consequences, you need to avail of our composite fillings. These come as a perfect solution to the issue of cavity attacked teeth because they come matched with the color of your teeth! Composite fillings are made up of plastic, ceramic and glass. A special light is used to harden the filling material to its place which makes it a long-lasting permanent solution to tooth decay.
Get a dental checkup and determine if you need any fillings in your teeth by calling us at our FLOSS Katy dentist office at 832-844-2929!
How are fillings placed?
The affected tooth is made numb and the plaque (along with the decayed portion) is cleared off. The hollow space is clearly examined such that the tooth nerve and other tissues are not exposed after cleaning off. The fillings are then placed, shaped and hardened according to the shape and structure of the tooth.
