If a patient has a cavity, Dr. Deore and Dr. Jones may recommend a dental filling in Coppell, Texas. To place a dental filling, our dentists will remove the decay, clean the tooth thoroughly, and place the dental filling. At Coppell Smiles, we offer composite dental fillings and amalgam dental fillings. Composite fillings are made from plastic and tooth-colored materials. Amalgam fillings are made from mercury, silver, tin, zinc, and copper.
Our dentists will remove the tooth decay using a drill, air abrasion instrument, or a laser. The area is tested to ensure that all of the decay has been removed. Our dentists will then clean the area of bacteria and debris. The dental filling material is then placed, finished, and polished. If a composite dental filling is used, the material is placed in layers. Our dentists will use a special light to cure each layer as it is applied. When all of the layers are in place, our dentists will shape the composite material to the ideal result, trim off any extra material, and polish the final filling.
We welcome you to contact Coppell Smiles today to learn more about dental fillings and to schedule your next visit with our dentists.
