A dental filling is a treatment typically recommended when your tooth has decay or a cavity. Each individual’s need vary and some fillings require more time than others. We provide our patients with tooth-colored dental fillings, which can be completed In one visit, ranging from 30 mins up to 2 hours. During your appointment, Dr. Chad will administer local anesthesia for your comfort and will remove any damage and decay from your tooth. The dental filling is placed where the decay was present to strengthen and protect your natural tooth.
Tooth Colored Fillings in Green Bay
The filling material is bonded to the tooth with special curing lights. Tooth-colored fills have the ability to match the shade or color of your surrounding teeth for a natural looking result.
A Visual Examination
In most dental offices, a hygienist performs the dental cleaning, and before he or she gets started, they will conduct an examination of your entire mouth. Your hygienist will use a small dental mirror to look at your teeth and gums, watching for signs of gum disease or other problems.
The Removal of Plaque and Tartar
Using special dental tools designed for this purpose, the hygienist will scrape away plaque and tartar that has built up around the gum line. Tartar tends to build up in certain areas—particularly behind the front bottom teeth—so the hygienist might have to do additional scraping there. Even the most diligent flossers and brushers will have plaque that builds up and turns to tartar, but the better your home care, the less scraping there will be.
The Deep Cleaning
Once your teeth are free of most of the tartar, a gritty substance will be brushed on your teeth with a high-powered electric brush. This will remove any remaining tartar as well as surface stains on your teeth. The hygienist will then floss your teeth and rinse away any remaining debris.
