Despite your efforts, you may develop tooth decay. If this happens, Dr. Price and Dr. Bauscher may recommend a dental filling in Houston, Texas. A dental filling can correct and restore a tooth that has decay, thus helping you regain ideal oral health.

At Price Dental Associates, we provide tooth-colored fillings. To place a dental filling, our dentists will first numb the area around the tooth. The decayed area of the tooth is then removed and the area is checked to ensure that all damaged tooth structure has been taken out. Our dentists will then clean the area of debris and bacteria. The dental filling material is then placed one layer at a time. As each layer is placed, it is cured with a special light. When the layering is complete, Drs. Price and Bauscher will shape the material, remove any excess, and polish the final filling.

In order to take care of your filling, practice good oral hygiene. Visit Price Dental Associates at least twice a year, brush your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste, and floss at least once a day. If you suspect that your dental filling is cracked or that it no longer fits snugly, contact our office for an appointment. X-rays will be taken to determine the best course of action, which may be to place a new dental filling.

We welcome you to contact our dental office today at 281-493-1550 to learn more and to schedule your next appointment with our dentists.
