Do you have a cavity? Have you been putting it off because of concerns about discomfort? Would you prefer to avoid the sounds and sensations connected with getting a filling? Let us put your fears to rest with our anesthetic-free laser fillings in in Spearfish and Rapid City, South Dakota.
For a patient with tooth decay, Drs. Mick, Brad, Nicole and Monique Dana can fix the problem using our laser. The laser can make the treatment as pain-free as possible. Many patients do not even need anesthetic when a laser is used to place a filling!
Our dentists will use the laser to remove decay from the tooth and prepare the surrounding enamel to receive the filling. A dental laser does not have the noise and vibration of a drill, so many patients feel more at ease during treatment. Our dentists will probe the area to ensure that all of the decay has been removed. The area is cleaned of bacteria and debris, then the filling is then placed, finished and polished. If a tooth-colored filling is used, the material is placed in layers. A special light is used to cure each layer. Then the material is shaped, any excess is trimmed off and the final restoration is polished. As the name suggests, tooth-colored fillings are made to match the shade of your natural teeth.
It is time to have that tooth taken care of, so come in and see us. For more information about fillings and dental lasers, and to schedule an appointment with our dentists, we invite you to contact Dana Dental Arts at 605-642-7727 or 605-342-6038 today.
