Dental Fillings Centennial

Preventing Cavities

Preventing dental cavities and maintaining a healthy set of teeth takes a little commitment on your part. You’ll need to brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss your teeth daily. Occasionally, even with excellent home care, a tooth may get a cavity. You may not always feel pain with a cavity, so be consistent with your dentist visits to prevent cavity development. At your dental appointments, a dentist will inspect your teeth, discover any cavities that may be lurking in your teeth, and give you advice on repairing the cavity.

If you do feel the symptoms of a cavity or hole in your teeth, you may feel:

  • A sharp pain when you consume hot or cold foods and beverages.
  • A hole in a tooth.
  • Pain when you bite down or chew.
  • A toothache.

If you feel any of these symptoms, don’t just mask the symptoms with medication. Contact Dr. Tran right away, so the cavity doesn’t cause any further damage.

Dental Fillings centennial

When a tooth begins to decay, this decay must be stopped. One of the ways to prevent further decay in a tooth is by having a filling placed into the area of the cavity. Having a filling put into a tooth prevents further damage to the tooth, and may prevent more costly and extensive dental work in the future, like an extraction or a root canal.

What Color of Filling Should I Choose?

Traditionally, people were given fillings with a silver amalgam product. Everyone who looked in your mouth could tell you had a cavity repaired. The result of a silver amalgam filling cures the cavity and the cost is low, but the look is unsightly. Thankfully, today’s dental patients who needs a filling may choose a more aesthetically pleasing white filling.

White Dental Fillings

White dental fillings are made from a composite resin. This composite resin’s strength is as sturdy as the traditional silver filling, and will correct any cavities you may have. The best aspect of a white dental filling is that it resembles the way a tooth naturally looks. White dental fillings are appropriate for people with cavities or who have had an injury to their teeth.

Getting a White Filling

Obtaining a white dental filling is a fast and easy process for Dr. Tran to perform. Dr. Tran has a great deal of experience in using white composite resin to fill teeth. The entire procedure only takes from 15 to 45 minutes to perform. First, our centennial dentist will use a local anesthetic to numb your tooth. Next, a special dental tool removes the tooth decay, after which the filling is placed in the hole. Finally, Dr. Tran will ensure that your bite is properly aligned. After he checks the alignment of your teeth with the new filling, you will be free to resume your normal activities with no pain and a healthier mouth.

For more information on white dental fillings, please call Dr. Tran today.

★★★★★ I highly recommend the dental team at Centennial Smiles! I just recently had a few of my old silver fillings break and urgently sought out help from Centennial Smiles's providers. Visiting the dentist and knowing you need extensive dental work done can be very daunting, and that's where a friendly, professional front desk staff made all the difference. The office at Centennial Smiles is also extremely flexible and accommodating when booking appointments. They make sure their patients are comfortable and never left waiting. I would recommend Centennial Smiles to any of my own friends and family and cannot imagine getting my dental work done anywhere else.

★★★★★ I highly recommend Centennial Smiles. The entire staff was friendly and professional. I'm generally anxious going to the dentist, but Dr. Chris a nd Angel (dental assistant) made my experience so pleasant, and they took pride in the ir work and explained everything step by step as it was happening. MJ (manager) was so efficient. She explained my benefits and took the time to call my insurance to make sure the procedures were being covered. I'm so happy that I'm finally in good hands. Thank you so much!

★★★★★ If you are in Las Vegas and need work done, this is the place to go. I was visiting family members and had a dental emergency. The staff was friendly, helpful, and gave me a same-day appointment. Though my insurance did not cover it, their price for the service was very reasonable. It's too bad I live in California.
