No one ever wants to hear that they have a cavity, but thankfully we can easily repair most cavities using a simple tooth filling! A cavity filling is a very common procedure that prevents further tooth decay while strengthening your tooth. We use resin fillings, which are much more durable than traditional mercury fillings – and they look natural, too! They’re also safe for patients with metal allergies. If you’ve been searching for a dentist in the Rohnert Park area, call 707-573-0600 to schedule your appointment with Team Buzza. With over 35 years in general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry, you’ll know you’re in excellent hands the moment we pick up the phone!
Cavities are caused by bacteria that eat away at your tooth enamel, leaving behind holes and weakened areas. They’re very common, even for patients who brush and floss regularly. It’s also common to not realize you have a cavity until the problem gets worse – one reason why regular exams are so important! One the cavity becomes worse, you might notice pits in the tooth, dark discoloration, or staining. You might also have pain or temperature sensitivity. If left untreated for too long, cavities can get larger and may need more than just a tooth filling, so it’s important to take care of them before they have a chance to get worse!
How Does It Work?
When you come in for your exam, we’ll start by taking a look. If we find a cavity, we’ll remove the decay and then place your dental filling. If you have a very deep cavity or have lost a portion of your tooth to decay, we may recommend a root canal or a crown. If you do need a root canal, though, don’t worry! The procedure has come a long way over the years and is no more uncomfortable than getting a regular tooth filling. We also offer sedation dentistry if you get nervous or squirrely in the dentist’s chair.
We can also use a dental filling to repair broken, cracked, or worn teeth. No matter what you need, you won’t have to worry about us pushing procedures or anything you feel uncomfortable with. We also don’t use fancy jargon here. Sometimes your teeth are just “grumpy!” Schedule an appointment, and we’ll take a look and give you your options. You let us know what works best for you! We offer a wide range of services and creative solutions to help you achieve your health and cosmetic goals. And if money is a concern, not to worry! We have special offers for new Rohnert Park patients, as well as third-party interest-free financing. Contact Team Buzza today to schedule your appointment!
