Dental caries, which are also known as dental cavities and tooth decay, can harm your oral health, especially if they are left untreated. This is why it’s important to call Samuel Yee DDS INC at 949-831-3111 and schedule an appointment with Dr. Samuel Yee DDS as soon as you suspect a cavity has formed on one or more of your teeth.
At our office, we proudly offer composite dental fillings to restore the health and function of your tooth. Composite dental fillings in Aliso Viejo, California, offer strong and natural-looking results. When you come to our office for treatment, you can expect the following steps during your appointment:
First, your dentist will numb your tooth and gums so you don’t feel any pain during your appointment. Then, he will use a special tool (like a dental drill, air abrasion, or laser) to remove the decayed portion of your tooth.
Second, Dr. Samuel Yee DDS will thoroughly clean the tooth to help you prevent complications in the future, like recurred cavities.
Third, he will fill the tooth with composite resin. This will involve your dentist placing the filling in layers. After each layer is placed, he will harden it with a special curing light.
Fourth, when the entire filling is hardened, your dentist will shape it until it offers perfect results. Your dentist wants you to have a comfortable and strong dental filling so you can have the best oral health possible.
To schedule an appointment with our dentist regarding tooth decay, please call our office at 949-831-3111 at your earliest convenience. The sooner you come to our office for treatment, the sooner our dental team can fix your tooth and repair your smile!
