Gold Fillings for Cavities

While most cavities are detected during your dental checkup with your dentist, Dr. [doctor_name], you should also watch out for them yourself. If you notice a change in your tooth’s texture or tooth sensitivity between dental checkups, you should not procrastinate with having it examined. With timely treatment, most cavities can be repaired with a dental filling in [city], [state].

Dr. [doctor_name] will start the process by examining the tooth and taking a few X-rays. This helps determine the extent of the decay, which might also influence the material [heshe] recommends for the filling.

Dr. [doctor_name] will then numb the area before using a drill to remove all the decayed tooth enamel. Composite and amalgam fillings can be applied during the same appointment.

For a cavity on a back tooth, Dr. [doctor_name] might recommend repairing it with a gold filling. This involves making a detailed impression of the cavity before applying a temporary filling. The impression will be sent to a dental lab where it is custom crafted. When it’s ready, Dr. [doctor_name] will call you back in for a brief appointment. The temporary filling will be removed and the gold filling will be cemented in place.

If you are concerned that a cavity has formed on one of your teeth, you should call [practice_name] at [phone] to have it examined and treated.
