Kiss Cavities Goodbye
If Dr. Chakka diagnoses you with a cavity, one of our tooth-colored fillings will quickly return you to optimal health, function, and comfort. Rest assured, we strive to provide comfortable, compassionate care, as well as beautiful restorative solutions.
What Are Fillings?
A filling is a restorative treatment that addresses a cavity. When you develop a cavity, plaque has eaten away at your tooth’s tissue, forming a hole. As the hole deepens, you may experience sensitivity due to exposed nerves. You also run the risk of bacterial entry and infection within your tooth.
To perform a filling, we will begin by numbing your tooth and the surrounding tissues for a comfortable procedure. Dr. Chakka will then clean out the cavity, removing existing decay and damaged tissue. He will then fill the hole with a color-customizable material called composite. We use only composite fillings, also known as tooth-colored fillings, at Stadium Dental and Orthodontics.
Why Are Fillings Significant?
Fillings offer a wonderful array of advantages to our patients, including:
- Our tooth-colored fillings will blend seamlessly into your smile
- By removing tooth decay and filling your cavity, we protect your tooth from future infection
- Fillings restore missing tooth tissue, so you can chew comfortably
- A filling stops the progression of a cavity, often preventing a future need for root canal therapy
