The Importance of Early Treatment
With a filling
We offer both composite and amalgam fillings at St. Clair Tooth Co. Composite fillings are made of tooth-colored dental resin, and are designed to match your teeth perfectly. They are strong and durable, and provide excellent cosmetic results, making them ideal for front teeth.
Amalgam fillings are made from a blend of metals including tin, copper, mercury, and silver. They have a silver-gray appearance, so they don’t match your teeth as well. However, they are extremely strong and resistant to wear, so they are a great option for restoring rear molars and premolars.
If you’re not sure which type of filling is right for you, our St. Clair Shores dental team is here to help. Dr. Carly Cassleman can discuss the benefits of both composite and amalgam fillings with you, and help you choose the right option for your needs.
What to expect
the filling process
To begin the procedure, Dr. Carly Cassleman will clean your mouth and numb the treatment area. Once your mouth is numb, she will use a dental drill to gently remove any decayed enamel from the cavity, and she will clean and disinfect the area.
Once the cavity has been prepared and cleaned, she will begin applying the filling material layer-by-layer. Using specialized dental tools, Dr. Cassleman will reshape the filling as she builds it, ensuring that it matches the natural shape and size of your tooth.
Then, the filling material will be hardened, and Dr. Cassleman will refine the shape of the filling further using a dental drill. She will check your bite to make sure the filling fits properly. Once your bite looks perfect, she will clean the filling and tooth a final time, and the procedure will be complete.
