Most patients will receive a dental filling at some point in their life to address a decayed or damaged tooth. At Kanning Dental in Lawson and Richmond, MO, we place dental fillings using a variety of materials to help patients restore and maintain their oral health.
Dr. Kanning and Dr. Tippin use some of the latest in dental diagnostic technology to look for tooth decay in the earliest stages when conservative treatment is most effective. A dental filling is an important part of keeping the natural teeth strong and healthy and avoiding damage that may lead to an extraction.
Kanning Dental offers white, cosmetic fillings for the most natural-looking result. We can replace old, dark or leaking fillings with a tooth colored composite filling that will enhance your smile and provide lasting results.
The Dental Filling Procedure
The dental filling procedure is often quick and performed with the use of a local anesthetic if necessary. Dr. Kanning or Dr. Tippin will prepare the area to be treated before removing any decay.
The biocompatible material chosen for the filling will be applied and permanently sealed. The surface will be adjusted and polished to ensure a comfortable, stable bite as well as an aesthetically pleasing result.
