Your Needs First
When you visit our Hampton, VA practice for dental fillings, you'll be greeted by a welcoming staff and a team of caring, compassionate dentists who want your experience to be a positive one. Whether this is your first cavity or you're used to the idea of getting cavities filled, we'll walk you through the process from start to finish and answer any questions you have.
Our method for handling dental fillings is quick and as pain-free as possible. First, the area around the tooth with the cavity is numbed using a topical anesthesia and an injection to desensitize the root nerves. Then, your dentist will fix the cavity and remove any unhealthy areas of the tooth to prevent decay from spreading.
The remaining area of the tooth is then cleaned and carefully filled with amalgam, silver, or porcelain and shaped to conform with your natural bite pattern.
Remember: there’s a smart way to help prevent cavities and keep your teeth looking great for life. First, always brush twice a day after breakfast and before bed. And floss to remove the plaque from between teeth where a toothbrush can’t reach. If you smoke, or use smokeless tobacco, quit! Because tobacco can increase your risk of tooth decay, mouth cancer, and other diseases.
