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

At Forestwood Dental, we provide tooth-colored dental fillings. To place a 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 filling material is then placed one layer at a time. Each layer is cured with a special light as it is placed. When the layering is complete, Drs. Nguyen and Nguyen will shape the filling material, remove any excess material, and polish the final dental filling.

Take care of your dental filling by practicing good oral hygiene. Brush your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste, floss at least once a day, and visit Forestwood Dental at least twice a year. If you suspect that your dental filling is cracked or that it no longer fits snugly, contact our office for an appointment. We will take X-rays to determine the best course of action, which may be to place a new dental filling.
