Dental issues often start small but become more extensive and expensive if left untreated. That’s why treatments such as dental fillings are so important. They can save your teeth while preventing a much bigger problem down the road. Dr. Rekha Mahajan is an outstanding tooth-filling dentist at Mahajan Dentistry who can care for your needs.
Dental fillings are a treatment used to halt decay activity or prevent a tooth cavity from turning into a deeper, more extensive, and damaging issue that can endanger your oral health. These fillings restore a decayed tooth, which might save it from being extracted in the future. Our fillings are made using a special composite resin that resembles your natural teeth and can be placed in one visit.
Dr. Mahajan wishes to guarantee that her work matches her patients’ teeth. She also knows that composite resin is the safest material a practitioner can use for fillings. This filling serves as a safe and esthetic treatment for preserving your smile. In contrast to silver amalgam fillings, these resin composite fillings don’t contain mercury toxins. They are guaranteed not to contract and expand as the temperature changes, which leaves your tooth exposed to harmful bacteria.
Like any dental treatment, the success of your resin fillings largely depends on the level of care you show them and your teeth. Fortunately, caring for them isn’t much beyond following dental hygiene best practices, such as flossing and brushing your teeth after every meal and visiting Mahajan Dental a few times a year to allow us to monitor the health of your fillings and help you make an informed decision should you need to have it removed for any reason.
