Bicknell Tooth Fillings Will Keep Your Smile Healthy
At Stephen K. Williams DDS & Associates, we don’t use old-fashioned metal fillings. In fact, for about 80 percent of our Bicknell tooth fillings, Dr. Williams doesn’t even have to use a drill! How’s that for comfortable, pain-free fillings? When we fill your teeth, you will benefit from:
- Metal-free composite material that looks natural and lasts for years
- Laser treatment that numbs your tooth and removes decay at the same time
- Sedation options including inhaled sedation and oral conscious sedation with a pill
- Amenities like large operatories, pillows, blankets, TVs, and longer appointment times
Visit us to get your teeth filled comfortably! Call us today at (812) 220-0636 to schedule your appointment.
Laser Treatment Makes For Comfortable Fillings
Your comfort is our top priority. That’s why we’ve invested in dental laser equipment that’s designed to make the tooth filling process as pleasant as possible. For the large majority of the fillings we place, we’re able to use this special laser to remove the decay without having to use a drill. After the decay is gone, Dr. Williams will then place a beautiful composite filling that will blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
For many of our patients, however, especially those with dental anxiety, the best part is that the laser will numb the tooth without your having to endure any shots. So, getting your filling is a shot-free, drill-free process.
If you have old silver-colored metal fillings (or fillings made from any kind of unsightly metal), Dr. Williams can safely replace them with long-lasting composite fillings. Metal fillings are only designed to last for 10 to 15 years. Over time, they can break down and even fall out, leaving your tooth vulnerable to decay and damage.
We Offer Other Types of Tooth Repair If Needed
If your cavity is larger, we may use a crown for the repair. We have the ability to make you a beautiful new crown right in our office using our CEREC system – while you wait! If a complete crown isn’t required, we can have our lab partner make you a porcelain inlay or onlay to repair the damage. You’ll simply return to our office when your restoration is ready to be placed.
