Dr. Hill uses a variety of materials to repair cavities. So, if you have decay, it is essential to treat the Tooth right away. We fix damaged teeth with durable and robust dental fillings in Beverly Hills.
During the restorative procedure, our dentist removes all signs of decay. Then they apply the appropriate filling material. Next, the layer is sculpted and hardened with a curing light. Once the process is completed, your Tooth will be returned to its natural shape and functionality. Porcelain fillings prevent the spread of decay and tooth sensitivity. As a result, the restored Tooth should serve you well for many years to come. If you believe you have a cavity, please call us immediately to schedule an appointment.
Cleaning And Numbing The Treatment Area
Filing a cavity is a routine procedure that should not be feared. To start, Dr. Hill will clean the area and use a local anesthetic to numb the Tooth. If you suffer from dental anxiety, we offer sedation options to help you feel comfortable and safe before and throughout the procedure. Just let us know what your needs and concerns are before the day of your treatment. We are happy to book a consultation and answer all questions.
Preparing The Decayed Tooth
Tooth preparation is necessary after the affected area is numb. This means that your dentist will remove any decayed enamel. Trimming away the damaged structure ensures the treatment area is free of bacteria or disease.
Placing a Dental Filling
Your dentist in Beverly Hills, CA, will apply a tooth-colored filling near you to the adequately prepared Tooth. Composite fillings match the shade of your natural enamel. Silver amalgam or other metal materials are more visible. Dr. Hill will determine the suitable material depending on the severity of the decay, tooth location, and your preference.
With good oral hygiene habits and regular dentist visits, your Tooth will function well for a long time. So, regularly visit our dentist’s office and brush and floss every day.
