Miami Beach, FL Dentist
Many times you would see that your tooth gets damaged due to decay. To restore your tooth to the normal function and shape, dentists quite often advise for tooth fillings. The process of tooth bonding is quite simple. All your dentists would do is remove the decayed material from your tooth, clean the area, and then fill it with the filling materials (composite resin). At South Beach Dentistry, our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Sandor Valls, does not perform regular “bonding.” Dr. Sandor Valls has been recognized for his “Designer Fillings,” which are aesthetically engineered to create the perfect shape of your tooth. Many patients all over South Florida, come to visit Dr. Sandor Valls for his exceptional designer fillings.
Different types of fillings:
The dental condition varies from one person to another. This means that no one filling could be ideal for all suffering from tooth decay. The filling material depends on various conditions like the extent of decay, whether you are allergic to any material or not, the position of the tooth and the cost of the filling.
How to know that you would need a filling?
When you visit your dentist regularly, they would do a thorough checkup and let you know if you need a filling in your teeth. The dentists suggest that it is necessary for each one of us to visit the dental clinic at least twice a year to ensure that our oral condition is excellent. If you have a broken or chipped tooth, Dr. Sandor Valls will be able to design the perfect “filling” for you.
- Gold fillings
- Silver or Amalgam Filling
- Composite or plastic resins
- Porcelain fillings
They have mirrors using which they are able to see the surface condition of each tooth. If required they would carry out specialised treatments and might even ask for an X-ray. The methods of treatment depends on the extent of your tooth decay.
Designer filling process:
The basic steps followed while doing a tooth filling would include:
Dr. Valls will study the shape of your teeth and smile overall.
Dr. Valls might be given local anesthesia to numb the area around the tooth
The dentist will cut through the enamel so as to find the decay inside. Once they have removed the decay, they would clean the area and make it ready for filling.
- Next your tooth would be etch with an acid gel before it gets filled.
Once the area has been filled, the dentist will polish your teeth to give a bright natural look to your brand new designer filling.
Why to go for designer fillings?
As we all know, when teeth is not cleaned then plaque is formed. The plaque releases acids on the enamel which destroys it and helps in the formation of cavities. Dental fillings restore the function of the teeth and if it is a designer filling, then the whole process looks aesthetically good.
- It prevents the teeth from further decay
- It restores the function of the teeth
