Same Day Composite Fillings
If you are looking for a kind, trustworthy dentist in Pittsburgh, then look no further.
If you’re dealing with pain in a tooth or have noticed black on one of your molars, you might be experiencing tooth decay. Tooth decay is damage that occurs as acids eat away at your tooth enamel, creating a cavity. If left untreated, tooth decay can lead to significant tooth pain and greater issues in your mouth. Thankfully, however, the treatment is quick and straightforward.
Who Needs Dental Fillings?
The most common reason for a dental filling is to repair cavities.
Some signs you may have a cavity that requires a filling include:
Sharp pain when biting down on a certain tooth
Bad breath that does not go away with brushing
The appearance of a black or brown spot on the surface of your tooth
Sensitivity to hot or cold beverages and foods
A constant, dull toothache
Treating Tooth Decay With Fillings
To treat tooth decay and cavities, our skilled dental team at Kaur Dental of Fox Chapel will clean the area and fill the tooth with composite fillings. The process involves numbing a small area of the mouth surrounding the tooth, so you don’t feel the procedure. We will then remove the decay and replace it with a filling, so the hole created by the decay doesn’t lead to further problems. After receiving a filling, you simply need to treat the filled tooth like any other, brushing your teeth and flossing regularly to prevent problems in other teeth.
The primary advantage of composite fillings (over amalgam fillings) is that they can be colored to match your existing teeth, blending in with your smile and becoming nearly invisible.
