Providing Quality Dental Fillings to Scottsdale Patients
A filling fixes and restores the surface of a tooth damaged by wear, fracture, or decay. When a dentist performs an oral filling procedure, he/she first gets rid of the decayed tooth material, cleans the problematic area, and uses state-of-the-art dental equipment to fill the cleaned-out cavity.
If you’re required to undergo this oral procedure, turn to Shea Dental. We are an established dental practice in Scottsdale that offers cosmetic and reconstructive dentistry services, including teeth whitening, oral sealants, and fillings.
Unlike other dental offices, we use materials other than mercury or silver for filling cavities. As a mercury-free practice, we believe that silver is not particularly appealing to the eye. On top of that, using mercury as a material could weaken the structure of the tooth. Instead, we use porcelain fillings to restore the teeth. This material looks beautiful, as it can mimic the appearance and color of your teeth.
