“My experience was amazing at Premier Dental, [they were] very thorough and explained all my options. I had a routine cleaning, x-rays, and even had several cavities filled the next day! I used the nitrous gas which made the experience even more relaxing. Dr. [Ebke] was very nice and did a great job . . . it’s nice to have those cavities gone! Thanks so much, Premier Dental!”
Discovering you have a cavity is a bummer, but it’s nothing to worry about! We treat them with fillings every day!
At Premier Dental, our team works hard to make treatment as simple, convenient, and pleasant as possible. Plus, the earlier you visit for a filling, the more likely you’ll be to avoid a potential emergency later.
It’s always better to fix a tooth before it gets complicated. At Premier Dental we use a laser cavity detecting instrument, the Diagnodent, to identify cavities in its earliest stages thus allowing us to use less invasive procedures and preserve more tooth structure.
Before your treatment begins, your doctor will discuss all your options with you and help you choose the best filling for your particular case.
- Direct fillings are placed into a prepared cavity during a single visit. They include glass ionomers, resin ionomers, and composite (resin) fillings. The dentist prepares the tooth, places the filling, and adjusts it in one appointment.
- Indirect fillings Indirect fillings generally require two or more visits. They include inlays, onlays, veneers, crowns, and bridges, fabricated with gold, base metal alloys, ceramics, or composites. During the first visit, the dentist prepares the tooth and makes an impression of the area to be restored. Then, a temporary covering is placed over the prepared tooth. The impression is sent and the restoration is created in a dental laboratory. At the next appointment, the dentist cements the restoration into the prepared cavity and adjusts it as needed.
