Dental Fillings

Shot-Free Dental Fillings in Houston, TX

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 1 in 4 adults has at least one cavity, and the first line of defense for tooth decay is typically a dental filling. At Gloss Dentistry at Greenway, Upper Kirby dentist Dr. Tasneem Mahmood applies modern techniques to provide minimally invasive laser dentistry treatments that make the filling process more comfortable for our patients while still being just as effective at restoring damaged teeth.

Dental Fillings for Minor Dental Damage and Decay

Dental fillings are small restorations that can repair significant issues. During the dental filling procedure, Dr. Mahmood skillfully removes the damaged or decayed portion of the tooth. Afterwards, the space is filled with biocompatible material, which not only helps to restore the tooth’s structure but aids in providing lasting protection.

Whether it’s due to cavities, cracks, or damage from trauma, there are several reasons why people get dental fillings. For one, cavities are a common issue, and without proper treatment, they can lead to more serious dental problems down the line. Additionally, tooth decay caused by poor oral hygiene, sugary and acidic foods, and drinks can weaken the enamel and make it susceptible to cavities. Cracked or damaged teeth are another reason why people may need dental fillings. This can be the result of biting down on a hard object, experiencing a sports injury, or even grinding teeth at night. Whatever the reason, a dental filling can help protect teeth from further damage and restore them to their previous strength and stability.

Gently Getting the Job Done with BIOLASE® Waterlase Technology

Conventional dental drills rely on the removal of significant amounts of tooth structure, often leading to the generation of heat, pain, and microscopic cracks. These cracks can potentially result in future infections underneath the filling.

In contrast, our Upper Kirby dentist uses the BIOLASE Waterlase system for the dental filling procedure. With this precise and proven all-tissue dental laser, Dr. Mahmood can eliminate damaged or decayed tissue without causing any unnecessary damage to the remaining tooth structure. Due to its exceptional accuracy, the need for anesthetic or shots is significantly reduced, resulting in a more comfortable dental filling experience.

Custom Tooth-Colored Fillings

Tooth-colored dental fillings are gaining popularity among patients who want a natural-looking smile without sacrificing function. Unlike traditional metal fillings, tooth-colored fillings are made from a composite resin that can be matched to the color of your natural teeth. This means that they are virtually invisible and can improve the appearance of your teeth while restoring their structure. In addition to their aesthetic benefits, tooth-colored fillings are also mercury-free and require less removal of healthy tooth structure than metal fillings. This makes them a safer and more conservative option for dental restoration. With tooth-colored dental fillings, you can have both a beautiful and healthy smile.
