When you think about it, your teeth are a marvelous part of your body. They chew your food, aid in the formation of words and help you speak clearly. If properly cared for, they can last many years. Helping patients take care of their teeth is our mission at Magnolia…
Dental fillings are an example of a treatment that qualifies as both restorative and cosmetic. When plaque penetrates the tooth enamel, a cavity results. The treatment for most cavities is dental fillings. Fillings do exactly what their name indicates — fill the cavities left by decay. Once the decay is removed, we will then fill your tooth with a material that prevents further decay and restores your ability to chew.
To enhance the appearance of your smile, we may suggest using composite (tooth-colored) fillings instead of amalgam (silver). With composite fillings, there are no dark spots to detract from the natural beauty of your smile. In cases where tooth decay is advanced, fillings may be insufficient; in these cases, we recommend dental crowns.
The best way to avoid fillings is to avoid tooth decay. Be sure to brush at least twice a day, floss daily, and visit us at least twice a year to prevent cavities. If you do happen to need fillings, Magnolia Dental Care can provide a solution that will allow you to retain the aesthetics of your smile.
With two dedicated dentists on staff, we are able to:
- Spend more time with our patients than most dentists
- Have appointment availability for urgent care
- Welcome additional new patients to our dental family
What other patients, like you, have to say.
In the interest of providing patients with the best treatments available, we continue our education as dental practitioners. This means that we are able to incorporate both traditional methods that have been proven to be effective as well as new trends, materials, techniques, and technology to ensure that each patient receives optimal dental care at each visit.
The entire body is interconnected from head to toe — including the teeth, jaw, and other oral structures. For this reason, we provide our patients with holistic care. In conjunction with a Postural Restoration Institute trained physical therapist, we are able to help patients with dental issues that may be hindering their body’s ability to repair. The result is an improved quality of life.
We transform more than just your smile. Watch our video to find out how!
We take the time to treat the whole patient — physically, intellectually, and emotionally.
