Dental Fillings in Frisco, TX

What’s a Dental Filling?

Tooth decay is a condition that affects adults from all walks of life. According to one study, up to 92 percent of adults have experienced a cavity at some point in their lives.

A little cavity can turn into a bigger issue I f the tooth is left untreated. It may get infected, requiring a root canal or maybe even and extraction.

If you have a cavity, your dentist will most likely offer dental fillings as a treatment. Fillings are made out of composite and help to replace any areas within a tooth that have become severely decayed.

The decay is taken out of the tooth and the filling put into place simply and quickly. Fillings can be suitable for both pediatric and adult patients who have cavities. They can last for quite a number of years before they might need replacement.

Why are Fillings Needed?

The reason you might need a filling is because you have a cavity. Cavities are defined as small areas of decay in one or more teeth. Unfortunately, if you fail to treat cavities early on, the decay can go deeper into the tooth and cause the need for a root canal or even a full extraction. Fillings are done before the decay is allowed to get this bad.

Who’s a Candidate for Dental Fillings?

Patients of all ages and needs who have cavities are good candidates for fillings. We use tooth-colored composite fillings so that no one will even know you have a filling in one or more of your teeth.

Likewise, it isn’t uncommon for patients to want to replace older metal fillings with white ones. We can provide both treatment of cavities as well as replace older fillings that you might have.

If you have cavities, you are a prime candidate to get dental fillings! Get in touch with our office today to make sure you get your fillings taken care of so you don’t run in to more expensive issues and resotrations in the future.

The procedure is started by taking out any decay from the tooth. If multiple cavities are present, we can work on all of this at the same appointment as indicated. We then prepare the tiny hole that was made in removing decay for the composite material. Color matching the material ensures that the composite blends well with the rest of the tooth.
The material is put into the hole and smoothed out to remove any excess. It’s then hardened and cured into place, which both melts it into the tooth and prevents it from falling out over time. We will make sure that your bite and smile feel and look great after your procedure. We want to make sure your treatment lasts and doesn’t affect any of your other teeth. If you think you might need a filling, call us now and we will help to get you in for an examination.

Amazing office and even better staff! The dentist isn’t always the most fun place to go but this location does an amazing job in making sure you are comfortable from the second you walk in until you leave. They walk you through everything going on in your mouth and proper treatment needed going forward. You never feel in the dark or like they’re trying to oversell!! Happy I have found a dentist and will be recommending to family and friends!

I had a great first experience at the new Frisco office. Everyone was warm and friendly. I had a new patient coupon. They were straight forward and got everything done within an hour. Plenty of parking and the office was new and clean. Cannot wait to return. They did not try to sell any unnecessary services.

From the moment you walk in to sitting in "the chair" you feel very comfortable and welcomed. The customer service is top notch and a priority. You are always asked if they can make you more comfortable and if you are doing well. The cleaning was quick, easy, and painless (as it should be). Dr. Samir Prajapati and his team are professional and courteous. They were very thorough on what they were doing, what to expect next, and what the future holds for you and your oral health. The dentist office should be a place of peace and tranquility and that's what it was for me on their opening day.
