Cavities are very common but thankfully we can fix them quickly and easily with tooth fillings. Fillings also can be used to repair cracked or broken teeth, as well as teeth that have become worn down. We use durable resin dental fillings, which are stronger than traditional mercury-based ones. And as a bonus, our fillings are tooth-colored, so no one will be able to tell that you even have them! If you’ve been searching for general or restorative dentistry in the Sebastopol area, give Team Buzza a call today at 707-573-0600.
Cavities are one of the most common dental problems we see, even for people who have excellent oral health habits. Often, patients aren’t aware they even have a cavity until it becomes more of a problem. You may have a toothache, sensitivity, or be able to see a visible pit in the tooth. In some cases, the tooth may look dark or stained. Some patients can even have quite large cavities without any pain. When you come in for an exam, we’ll start by taking a look. If we find a cavity, we’ll remove the decay and then place a cavity filling. Modern dentistry has made dental fillings a quick and straightforward procedure. You’ll be done and on your way in no time!
Benefits Of Resin Fillings
Mercury tooth fillings were the standard for decades, but resin has many advantages. Resin is actually a stronger material, so it’s less likely to wear down over time. It also fits on the tooth better, so it’s more effective for larger cavities where there’s less of the natural tooth structure left. Plus, they’re discreet, which makes them a far better option for cavities in the front teeth. No matter where your fillings are, you can smile with confidence!
We know that many patients have some level of dental anxiety. If this is you, don’t worry! We understand – it’s your mouth, after all. If you feel nervous at all, we offer safe, effective sedation dentistry. Simply take a small “chill pill,” take a nap, and wake up feeling rested with your dental care completed. Whether you’ve been searching Sebastopol for a dentist in because you know you have a cavity or just because it’s been a while since you’ve had an exam, you’ll feel comfortable and completely cared for at our friendly office.
