Dental fillings are used to repair tooth decay, broken or fractured teeth, or worn down teeth.
Dr Strauch will make the process as simple as possible for you. He will do so in such a way that it is pain free & if required he will numb the tooth. As he has over 30 years of experience, he can do so in such a way that you will hardly notice as Dr Strauch always uses an effective topical numbing cream. Sometimes he can even perform dental fillings without any numbing & without you feeling any discomfort.
He will always discuss this with you before starting the procedure.
At this clinic, all restorative dental procedures are done under magnification (Dr Strauch wears loupes) so that he can control the fine detail required.
The main advantage of tooth-coloured restorations (otherwise known as composite restorations) is that they will create a natural tooth coloured appearance. Such restorations can be used in instances where much of the tooth structure has been lost, & especially where it is visible. The tooth remains intact and stronger than before.
Composite Restorations can also be bonded to the tooth structure, further improving their retention when a lot of the tooth is missing. However when more than half of the tooth is missing it is always best to strengthen the tooth with a crown for longevity & to prevent further loss or fracture.
