Composite resin is a dental material that is popular for several reasons. The material chemically bonds to teeth providing longevity for dental fillings. It also is strong, versatile, and natural looking. At 32 Dental in Kennesaw, we provide this natural looking material to patients in Marietta and the surrounding areas. Patients turn to our team of respected dentists, Drs. Lan Vo and Sean Breckley, for treatments involving composite resin such as dental fillings.
Our team cares about the overall health and wellbeing of patients. We believe in strong preventive care plans that help prevent tooth decay and gum disease. Therefore, it is important to know the symptoms of tooth decay so treatment can be sought promptly. Signs of cavities include visible pits in the teeth and tooth stains. Patients may experience toothaches, tooth sensitivity, and pain when eating or drinking cold or hot foods and beverages. Cavities or holes in the tooth enamel can grow larger over time. Left untreated, tooth decay can lead to gum disease or infection.
If you have experienced any signs of tooth decay, we recommend scheduling an appointment with Dr. Vo or Breckley. She or he will examine the health of your mouth, teeth, and gums. The examination may include taking x-rays of the jawbone and soft tissues. If you are a candidate for a dental filling, a treatment plan will be tailored to meet your needs.
During the dental filling procedure, the area surrounding the affected tooth will be numbed with local anesthetic. We can also provide sedation such as nitrous oxide to ease any anxiety during treatment. The dentist will remove the decayed portions of the tooth and prepare the space for the filling. This involves cleaning the space of bacteria and debris. The area will be filled with composite resin, to restore health and function to the smile.
Our team strives to provide gentle as well as conservative treatment. After a single appointment, you can have health and beauty restored to your smile as well as experience pain relief from a throbbing or constant toothache. To explore dental filling treatment further, schedule a consultation with Dr. Vo or Dr. Breckley by calling 770-423-1132.
