Dental Fillings in Aurora, CO
At Spruce Canyon Family Dentistry, we strive to make fillings as quick and painless as possible. What is a dental filling? A dental filling is a procedure that is required in the case of a dental cavity to fill in space in the tooth that has been eaten away by tooth decay.
Cavities are common among both teens and adults, and a dental filling may be required to prevent the cavity from spreading. Our Aurora, CO office has the best in class tools and expert staff to perform dental fillings expertly and painlessly at the convenience of your schedule.
What is a Filling?
Tooth decay is preventable if you treat it properly. Getting a cavity filled right away is the best way to prevent the cavity from spreading. If you have cavities, eventually, they will start to hurt as the tooth is worn down to expose the sensitive nerves. There are a variety of different types of fillings that are available, and we offer the modern solutions that you need.
Our expert staff can walk you through all of the steps of the process so that you feel confident in the procedure. Modern-day fillings use a type of resin to fill in the tooth after the decay has been removed. This type of resin will look just like a real tooth–so no shiny metal in the back of your teeth from fillings.
What to Expect
When you come into Spruce Canyon Family Dentistry for a filling, you can expect our friendly staff to answer any questions you have about the procedure. Before we begin working on the cavity, we will numb the area or use anesthesia to put the patient to sleep temporarily for the duration of the procedure. We make quick work out of filling a cavity, so “going under” is rarely necessary.
The most uncomfortable part for some people may be the needle prick from the numbing agent, but after that, the operation is usually relatively painless and fast. If there are any complications with your procedure, we will walk you through them before we begin so you know exactly what to expect.
