When you visit Oak Family Dental at either Mandeville or Metairie for a cavity filling, our experienced dentist will first examine your teeth and take dental X-rays, if necessary, to determine the extent of the decay.
Next, we numb the affected tooth using a local anesthetic to ensure a comfortable and pain-free experience. Our dentist will then remove the decayed portion of the tooth using specialized dental instruments, leaving behind a clean and healthy surface.
Once the tooth is ready to be filled, our dentist will carefully fill the cavity with the chosen filling material. At Oak Family Dental, we offer tooth-colored composite fillings, which blend seamlessly with your natural tooth color, providing an aesthetically-pleasing result.
For patients who prefer a more traditional option, we also offer dental amalgam fillings, which are known for their durability and strength. Our dentist will discuss the available options and help you choose the most suitable filling material for your specific needs.
