Does sipping something cool and refreshing make you wince with pain? Are you tired of the hole in your tooth that everyone can see when you smile?
Cavities, decay, and other damage to your teeth can be painful and draw unwanted attention. If you live in the Rochester, MN area and need dental fillings, count on Apollo Dental Center to give you quality dental care.
A Variety of Dental Fillings
Fillings help fill places in your teeth that have been worn away by decay or have been cracked or broken. A filling can transform your smile, give you confidence, and help you eat, drink, and talk in comfort.
We offer amalgam fillings, which are silvery in color and are made of a conglomerate of silver, mercury, copper, and tin. Dental amalgam has been used for over 150 years as a durable, safe, and inexpensive way to fill cracks and holes in teeth.
We also offer composite fillings, which are an effective alternative to amalgam fillings. Composite filling is a mixture of plastic and glass used in cosmetic dentistry, as it is tooth-colored and very subtle in appearance.
A Safe and Easy Procedure
If tooth decay or damage is making you uncomfortable, talk to your dentist about dental fillings. Together, you can decide the type of filling you’d like to have and schedule your appointment.
When you arrive for your filling appointment, your dentist will give you a local anesthetic, which will numb the area around the tooth being filled. Your dentist will then clear away any decay or damage, clean the tooth, and then fill the tooth with amalgam or composite.
After the filling has been laid and hardened, the dentist will shape, trim, and polish the filling so that it is comfortable.
