A long-lasting and effective tooth decay treatment

Tell-tale signs of tooth decay— pain or sensitivity around the affected area —alert you and your dentist to a cavity, a cracked tooth, or an over-worn tooth. A cavity diagnosis may include tests such as visual assessments, palpation, and x-rays.

Treating a cavity with a filling involves removing decayed tooth structure and replacing that void with another material, such as porcelain, silver, or white composite filling. This filling protects your tooth from further decay.

At Miss-Lou Family Dentistry, our reliable team of trained dentists can diagnose the type of treatment you might need, and provide the needed care to fill chipped or cracked teeth, or cavities, and relieve you of pain and discomfort.

Our dental filling process

All treatment starts with a full explanation of your dental situation, followed by a consultation to determine the best treatment for you. We’ll ask you questions about your symptoms, perform an exam, and take x-rays to determine the state of your oral health.

For very small cavities, we may simply recommend a wait-and-see approach, where we give your body time to heal itself. If the cavity is large and painful, or is located in a hard-to-reach area, a filling will be recommended.

The steps of a dental filling procedure

  • 1. We first numb the area with local anesthesia, ensuring a pain-free experience.
  • 2. The tooth decay or old filling is cleaned.
  • 3. We’ll fill the cleaned area with a composite filling material.
  • 4. Then, we polish the filling, ensuring that it’s smooth and properly shaped.
  • 5. A bite test will be next conducted to make sure the new filling hits the opposing teeth correctly.
  • Finally, you walk out with restored teeth and renewed oral health!
