If you are in need of dental fillings in Sylmar, visit Lakeview Family Dental. Dental fillings are used to treat cavities and repair cracked or broken teeth. Although cavities can be prevented with good dental hygiene, sometimes uncontrollable factors such as family history can be a contributing factor. Learning that you have a cavity can be unpleasant but we make the treatment process as easy and pain-free as possible for you and your family.
Once we have identified the tooth or teeth that have incurred cavities, we will start the process of preparing your dental fillings by setting up an appointment. We provide dental filling for patients throughout the Lake View Terrace area. Our reception staff will help you make an appointment that fits into your schedule so when you return you can receive your dental fillings.
Leaving cavities untreated is obviously not a good idea. It is important to repair the decayed tooth as soon as possible so that your tooth or teeth undergo no further damage. Treating cavities and receiving dental fillings will let you continue to enjoy your favorite foods and get a good night’s sleep.
Letting your teeth go without repairing the damage can risk of further damage and decay to the tooth. This can ultimately lead to an inability to save the tooth. At this point you could need a root canal. It is far better to take care of cavities early before the problem can become worse.
Amalgam & Composite Fillings
Some of the materials that we use as fillings include composite resin and amalgam. Composite resin is made up of small silica molded by a plastic resin. These pieces are white so they work to blend with your teeth more naturally. Amalgams are more common and are made up of silver, tin, copper and have a silver appearance.
At Lakeview Family Dental, we always want your visit to be as comfortable as possible. We will numb the tooth so that you will not feel any pain, clean the decay from the tooth and fill the tooth quickly and thoroughly so you will be on your way to smooth recovery.
