White dental fillings are usually made of composite resin, a special blend of plastic and ceramic. This blend mimics the natural appearance of dental enamel and provides a remarkably durable restoration that can even be used in back teeth, which have massive bite forces. If you are a candidate for a white dental filling, our expert in white dental fillings in Canoga Park can usually complete the procedure in a single appointment.
First, our Canoga Park white dental fillings expert will prepare the tooth. The damaged and decayed part of the tooth will be removed, and the tooth structure will be cleaned. A special etching or conditioning liquid may be applied to act as a primer for a stronger, more secure bond. Then the putty-like white filling material will be applied to the tooth and shaped to match the tooth. The material is cured using a special light, and this allows it to harden immediately so that you can use your filling the same day you get it.
White fillings require no special care, but good dental hygiene continues to be important. Brush your teeth using a soft-bristled brush and fluoride toothpaste after meals or at least twice a day, floss daily and visit our expert in white dental fillings in Canoga Park twice a year for the best results. If you grind your teeth, you may need to wear a mouthguard to protect your natural teeth and restorations. Contact our office today to learn more about your dental filling options or to schedule a consultation with our Canoga Park cosmetic dentist.
I spent months looking for a dental office before finding Dr. Choroomi and his staff. I took patient reviews, office location and hours, staff friendliness, and out of pocket costs when looking for a dentist.
I came here last week for my dental cleaning and come to find out I had a lot more work to do then that. Today I had gotten my wisdom teeth extracted and perfect success I have never had a better experience with a doctor then this one thank you Doc.
I cannot say enough about how awesome this dentist is! Dr. Amir is super personable, flexible, and really knows his craft. If you are having any negative experiences with you current dentist, you simply have GOT to give this dentist a try!
