Keep Your Smile Looking Great With Tooth-Colored Fillings
Metal fillings can stick out like a sore thumb in your smile. That’s not the only reason our dentists don’t use them, however. To fit precisely, metal fillings require removing some of your healthy tooth structure. When they need to be replaced, you may need to invest in a dental crown instead.
To keep your smile beautiful and maintain your oral health, Dr. Juarez and our skilled team repair your tooth decay with tooth-colored fillings. No one will even know you’ve had dental work done!
At Houston Uptown Dentists, we can catch dental decay early during your regular dental cleanings and exams. To ensure we won’t overlook any potential signs of decay, we use a state-of-the-art DIAGNOdent cavity detection system. Once we have determined you need a filling, we will:
- Plan your treatment using fast digital X-rays
- Numb the area with local anesthetic
- Relax you with sedation if you suffer from anxiety
- Clean the decay from your tooth
- Repair your tooth with a composite material color-matched to your tooth
In some cases, we can repair your cavity with a laser, for an even quicker and more comfortable process. The Fotona Laser allows us to remove the decayed area with little to no discomfort. Most patients don’t even need anesthesia! The Fotona Laser is modern dentistry at its finest, and you can benefit from it right here.
