Dental fillings are an effective treatment to treat dental cavities, commonly caused by tooth decay.
Are you experiencing tooth decay? Dental cavities can cause sensitivity and tooth pain. Even very small cracks in the top of a tooth can lead to a cavity hidden under the crown. If left unchecked, decay can spread, compromising the strength of the tooth. In this case, you may need a dental filling. Contact your dentist in Arlington, VA today for a consultation.
During your consultation, your Arlington dentist will advise you on the most appropriate course of treatment. A dental filling may be required to rebuild and seal the cavity, preventing further damage.
We offer composite fillings or tooth colored fillings to help prevent further tooth decay.
Dr. Rima Kanbaragha will start by numbing the area around the damaged tooth with a local anesthetic. Damaged or decayed parts of the tooth will be removed, exposing the cavity.
Dentist in Arlington, VA – Dr. Kanbaragha will then use amalgam to fill the cavity and strengthen the inside of the tooth. Your bite will be checked and then the surface of the filling is smoothed and polished, removing rough spots.
