Here at Smile Xpressions, we are proud to offer fillings to our patients.
Many people get cavities and broken teeth. To treat them, we offer fillings. Most people prefer to use composite resin because it looks like your normal teeth, though there are other options if you prefer. Composite resin takes a little longer because we have to apply it one layer at a time. We also need to use a special light to harden the area around the filling.
We recommend using a local anesthesia to numb the area before we start. We will clean out your bad tooth so that it is ready to be filled. Once your tooth is all filled, we will smooth over the rough edges and polish it so it looks natural.
Each filling is different depending on the damage, so it is hard to estimate the time and cost for each one.
If you have any questions about fillings or you think you may have one, please contact us today at (575) 746-1900.
I always receive great dental care at Smile Expressions! The staff is very friendly and accommodating, the hygienist is thorough and knowledgeable, and the dentist is proactive. They make a great team and provide quality service.
Smile expressions is an excellent, professional dental establishment that treats everyone like family.
