Fillings in Round Rock, TX
We know that you do everything to take good care of your family’s oral health. Unfortunately, no matter how proactive you are, cavities can still develop. In fact, you may be surprised to learn that tooth decay is the second most prevalent disease in the U.S. after the common cold!
Commitment to Excellence
When you get a cavity, we need to take care of it as quickly as possible to keep your teeth strong and healthy. We use state-of-the-art technology like digital x-rays and intraoral cameras that allow us to find decay in its earliest stages. When a cavity is small, a filling will usually be all that’s needed. We can restore the tooth and prevent the decay from spreading and leading to more serious oral health problems.
Dr. Lewcock and Dr. Zavala have years of advanced training and specialize in restoring health to damaged teeth. Our primary focus is on providing services like fillings that your family needs to enjoy a lifetime of excellent oral health.
Choosing the Right Treatment for You
We do have options for the type of filling we choose, and after we evaluate your situation, we will decide which is the best choice in your case. Some of the things we consider are:
- The location and extent of the decay
- Your oral-health history
- The impact a filling will have on your appearance
- How strong the filling must be based on the location of the cavity
As with any other procedure we perform, we won’t make any decision about treatment before we discuss all your options. Your oral health and comfort are our priorities, and you can be confident that we use only the most up-to-date diagnosis and treatment methods available.
Tooth-colored composite material is a combination of ceramic and plastic, which creates a durable, natural-looking filling. One advantage of using this material is that it can be closely matched to the shade of your own teeth.
The filling blends so perfectly with your natural dental enamel that your dental work is your secret. Actually, tooth-colored fillings look so real that even you may have trouble telling the difference!
Amalgam fillings, often referred to as silver fillings, are actually a combination of several metals, making them very strong and durable. Because of their strength, we usually use amalgam fillings on molars and teeth that have to withstand a lot of chewing force.
