Below is a list of the most common dental emergencies we treat:
A dental emergency is an urgent dental problem, usually associated with the teeth and jaws, which may have symptoms that require immediate attention by a dentist. For example, a severe dental infection, a visible swelling, or a recent dental trauma are all considered emergency problems that require prompt, professional attention.
LOOSE CROWN OR FILLING
If a tooth has cavities, the person may experience oral issues like sensitivity or difficulty in chewing normally. By filling up the cavities, one can enjoy daily activities without any difficulty.
What is cosmetic filling?
As the name suggests, cosmetic fillings involve putting a special material in a tooth's structure to prevent any issues that can take place due to hollow spaces in teeth. The most common material used for cosmetic filling is silver amalgam. Silver amalgam consists of silver, zinc, copper, and tin mixed with mercury. We also provide composite cosmetic fillings so that they blend seamlessly with your smile and go unnoticed while you talk or smile.
Most fillings are done in two ways:
Direct Filling - These fillings go right into the cavity after your dentist has cleaned out the decay. They harden quickly. Most of the time, you will be able to have a direct filling put in place in one appointment.
Indirect Filling - Examples of this type of filling are inlays and onlays. They are custom made in a lab to fit your tooth. Your dentist cements the filling in place. Most indirect fillings take two or more appointments to complete.
