Tooth decay can have lasting problems to the person affected if it’s not promptly treated. It doesn’t only give you recurring pain, but it also destroys the structure of your teeth. Through tooth fillings, VP Dental can give you a permanent solution to this horrible problem.

Improper oral care may lead to severe dental complications in the future such as tooth decay. Our mouth is full of bacteria, food particles and saliva. This composition is the perfect mix to produce plaque in your teeth.

This may be bad news for those with a sweet tooth because starchy and sugary food activates the energy of the bacteria lurking in plaque. More intake of this type of food, the more likely it is for you to have tooth decay.

Solution for Damaged Teeth

A popular solution for damaged teeth caused by tooth decay is dental fillings. VP Dental uses composite white fillings are because of their durability and also for cosmetic purposes. The white filling material comes in different shades, precision matched to the color of your natural teeth.

Many other dentists use amalgam, or silver fillings. We believe that composite fillings are the best solution for our patients' overall health and well-being.

Performing dental fillings is a fairly simple procedure for an experienced dentist, and Valerie M. Preston D.D.S. has been in this industry for more than two decades. The process for doing a tooth filling is fairly simple.

  • First, the affected tooth is cleaned from dental decay to prepare it for the composite material. Typically, your dentist will use local anesthetic to numb the area surrounding the affected tooth.
  • After doing this, Dr. Preston will test the area to see if all of the decayed materials are removed. Resin or glass ionomer is used to protect the nerves just before the composite white filling is applied in layers. After such procedure, polishing work has to be done to adjust your bite so that the tooth filling will look and feel natural.
