Dr. Das Can Help Fix Your Smile!
Dr. Das (or one of our other highly-skilled associates) will place a simple filling to save your smile and to save your wallet from more trouble down the road.
Dental Fillings Are Better Than Before!
Over the years, dentists have typically used a mixture of mercury and other metals called amalgam for the fillings that fix cavities. The effectiveness of the old-style treatments kept them en vogue for far too long. Especially since there have been valid complaints about the metal itself. The complaints should come as no surprise to anyone who had one of these fillings.
You see, amalgam is anything but subtle and so it is a stark contrast against your otherwise bright white smile. Worse than that, conventional fillings can actually make your tooth more vulnerable to fracture and cause damage to the nearby healthy tooth structures.
We Use Composite Materials
Our team (Dr. Das, Dr. Darcey, and Dr. Pham) now uses a newer, safer, and more aesthetically pleasing material for fillings: composite.
Composite consists of a blend of resins that lends itself well to the appearance of your natural teeth. Unlike metal, they will look and feel like they actually belong in your mouth.
In addition to being able to fill a cavity very discreetly, composite resin also has superior bonding properties that allow for much more durability.
Relax, getting a tooth-colored filling is a simple and pain-free experience at our Webster, TX dental practice. We will begin by numbing the area in question. And if you are anxious about the procedure, we have options for relaxing you.
Next, we will clean the cavity by removing the decayed tissue. After the cavity has been cleaned, we will apply the putty-like composite resin material in thin layers. We will shape these layers to match the surface of your tooth.
Lastly, we will harden the resin with a high-intensity light and polish it to match the sheen of your natural tooth. That’s all there is to it. Then you’ll get to take your fresh, clean mouth, and your healthy smile home with you.

Cavities are not a big deal in the grand scheme if you work to address them quickly.
