Dental Fillings

Dental Fillings in Mission, TX

Benefits of Dental Fillings

Dental fillings play a vital role in maintaining dental hygiene and health. Once a tooth has been damaged by decay, it’s essential to rebuild the affected areas of the tooth with dental fillings to restore their original shape, strength, and function. With composite fillings, you also benefit from improved aesthetics. Moreover, composite materials can restore a natural, beautiful smile. Additionally, dental fillings act as a protective coating around the vulnerable tooth area, preventing further decay and damage. Therefore, a dental filling is an effective solution for dental issues that can save time, money, and much frustration in the long run!

Expect Caring and Compassionate Care

Delivering dental care with empathy and kindness is vital to patients of all ages. Once you sit in one of our comfortable dental chairs, here’s what one can expect:

Preparation

If necessary, our dental team will numb the area with anesthetic and provide dental sedation to ease nerves. Then, Dr. Ochoa or Dr. Collantes will remove any damaged or decayed areas of the tooth and clean it.

Procedure

The tooth-colored filling material is applied directly to the tooth and bonded with light to protect and seal the tooth. If necessary, the dentist will smooth away any rough edges and polish the tooth for a more cohesive appearance.
