Dental Fillings in Alexandria

Dental fillings are a common procedure used to treat cavities or tooth decay. Fillings are used in order to prevent minor decay from rapidly spreading bacteria into the tooth’s pulp.

You may need a filling for any of the following reasons:

  • You have chipped teeth.
  • There is space between two teeth.
  • Cracked/broken teeth.
  • Decayed or worn teeth.

The Procedure

With Solea Laser we now do over 80% of fillings with no shots, no numbness, no drill, and no pain.

The Solea laser is the new dental drill and it is smooth, quiet, quick and virtually painless.

Dental fillings replace tooth structure that is missing due to decay or fracture. Over 95% of the population has them and they work well to stop decay, tooth break down and loss. The drill is the traditional tool for removing decay and reshaping the tooth for a filling. Solea Laser now replaces the drill and makes most fillings pain-free and a much better experience.

We prefer white fillings in almost every case. There are only a few areas where silver may work better. White fillings bond to the tooth for added strength and they look better. Times have changed. We're now doing 21st-century beautiful tooth colored fillings with 21st-century technology.
