What are fillings in Macon GA like?
Providence Dental Spa uses composite fillings made from a mixture of glass and plastic. They are non-toxic and colored to match the patient’s teeth.
The dentist will use a combination of anesthetic and numbing gel to keep the patient comfortable. They will then remove the decayed or infected part of the tooth and clean the remainder to ensure a strong bond with the composite. After filling in the tooth with a composite, the dentist will use a powerful light to make it harden more quickly.
After the composite has hardened, the dentist will make certain it has fully bonded with the tooth and is even with the tooth’s surfaces to permit normal chewing. After the dentist has made any needed adjustments, the patient is free to go.
What are inlays and onlays?
Inlays and onlays are restorations used when a tooth is too badly decayed or damaged to be repaired with a filling, but not so badly damaged as to need a crown. They can also be used to replace old fillings. An inlay fits within the cusp tips (top edges) of a tooth, while an onlay fits over them.
The process is similar to getting a crown, for the dentist will have to make an impression of the patient’s teeth and send it to a laboratory to have the inlay or only custom-made. The patient will use a temporary restoration while they wait.
