Do you have a toothache? Is your tooth sensitive to hot or cold temperatures? If so, you might have a cavity. Drs. Paul Eberhard and Masoud Shoukoohi are happy to restore the health of your tooth by removing the decay, cleaning the tooth and filling the tooth with a dental filling in Cartersville, Georgia.
At Mockingbird Dental Associates, we currently offer composite fillings, which are made of a resin material that matches closely to the color and appearance of your natural tooth. This product is durable and successful and can restore the health of your tooth as well as correct additional dental problems, like cracked, chipped or fractured teeth. Our dentists may use composite fillings to reestablish the health of your tooth and also give you natural-looking results.
The process involved in placing a dental filling begins with your dentist numbing your tooth with a local anesthetic. When your tooth is numb, the decayed portion of your tooth will be removed with a special dental tool. Once the decay is removed, your tooth will be deeply cleaned. Your dentist will then fill the tooth, layer by layer, with the dental filling. When the tooth is completely full, your dentist will trim and shape the top of the filling to make it fit perfectly with your bite.
