Dental Fillings Destrehan, LA

Dental Fillings An Overview

A cavity filling, or tooth filling, is commonly used to repair a decayed or damaged tooth. When a cavity compromises the tooth, a dental filling can help stabilize the tooth and protect it from further damage. Plantation Road Dental Care offers a full range of dental filling options to meet your needs and cosmetic goals.

In most cases, Dr. Melanie Andrews uses high quality, composite resin fillings to repair decayed or damaged teeth. Tooth colored filling material can be color matched to blend seamlessly with your natural smile. Composite dental fillings can also be used to replace traditional silver or metal fillings for an instant smile makeover. We will work with you to determine which type of filling best suits your needs and provides long-lasting, durable results.

Benefits of White Dental Fillings

White dental fillings are a biocompatible tooth-colored material that is carefully bonded to create a long-lasting, stable solution for decayed and damaged teeth. They can be color matched to blend with your existing teeth, giving you a more natural looking solution to tooth damage. Tooth-colored dental fillings are designed using a blend of a composite resin material that mimics the appearance of the natural tooth.

Tooth-colored dental fillings are durable, long lasting, and provide the support needed to sustain repeated pressure from biting and chewing. They also allow for a more conservative treatment that helps preserve more the of the natural tooth, making it an ideal solution to restore your smile.

Dental Fillings What to Expect

The dental filling procedure can typically be completed in one visit to our Destrehan, LA dentist office.

A local anesthetic may be administered to ensure maximum comfort. Once the designated area is numbed, Dr. Andrews will gently remove the damaged tissue from the tooth. The tooth is carefully cleaned and prepared for the filling material.

Once the tooth is prepared, a filling material is placed into the tooth. A special light is used to cure the filling material into place. The tooth is then buffed and polished for a smooth texture and a natural shine.
