Dental Fillings Silver Spring, MD

Dental FillingAn Overview

Dental fillings are a common procedure in dentistry. Most patients receive dental fillings if they are suffering from cracked, chipped, or decayed teeth. Dr. David Rever is a highly trained general dentist with years of experience treating complex oral health concerns. At Advanced Total Dental Care our staff can help restore your oral foundation and health while building a more beautiful smile.

Due to advancements in dentistry, patients can choose from a variety of dental filling material. Dr. Rever only uses the highest quality material to make sure patients walk out with a functional, bright smile.

Some common dental filling material includes:

  • Composite Filling- a mixture of fine particles and resins, specially designed to resemble to match the color of your natural tooth.
  • Lonomers- A combination of ground glass and acrylic. Lonomers are usually placed near the gum line or tooth root, where bite pressure isn’t a factor.
  • Porcelain- A combination of porcelain, glass powder, and ceramic. Porcelain fillings are known for their durability and aesthetics. Porcelain fillings are ideal for patients with advanced tooth decay or damage.

If patients have old fillings that may cause them discomfort or are visually distracting from your smile, Dr. Rever can assess the problem and offer a more durable dental filling material.

Dental Filling What to Expect

Applying a dental filling is typically completed in a single visit to our Silver Spring Dentist office. Dr. Rever will consult with you about your dental habits, concerns, and what his plan will be to restore your smile. After the consultation, Dr. Rever will numb the infected area and begin the application process. Next, Dr. Rever will remove a small amount of decay and apply the selected filling. The tooth will be polished cleaned and molded to match existing teeth.

Those who suffer from dental fear should be at ease, applying a dental filling is a quick and common restorative dental practice in our Silver Spring dental office. We work diligently to make sure each patient is comfortable no matter how simple the procedure may be.

Depending on the extent of the tooth decay, Dr. Rever may suggest an Inlay or Onlay to restore your smile.
