If your teeth sustain mild to moderate damage from cavities, cracking, or other factors, Dr. Cynthia Landry may recommend a dental filling to repair your teeth and restore your smile. Fillings are often a great choice for restoring your oral health and function because they are more conservative than other restorative treatments, and do not require the removal of large amounts of tooth structure or multiple visits to complete.
Dental fillings are a type of restorative treatment which work by literally “filling in” the damaged areas of your teeth. Fillings work to restore the structure and appearance of the damaged tooth, and to restore the health of the tooth.
Our dentist can place a dental filling in just one appointment. When you receive a filling, she begins by removing the decayed and damaged portion of the tooth and cleaning it to remove any remaining signs of decay. The filling material is then applied and shaped to match the contours of your tooth. Dr. Cynthia Landry then hardens and polishes the filling to complete your treatment.
At Landry Family and Orthodontic Dentistry, we ensure that our filling material is biocompatible, meaning that it will work with your body to enhance your oral health. We use biocompatible materials to provide you with treatments that are safe, effective, healthy and long-lasting.
