Cavity and Fillings for Austin
Air Abrasion is the pain-free method of removing cavities from your teeth. No anesthesia is required with this amazing piece of technology and the decay is removed from your tooth with a fast stream of air, powder and water. The cavity area is then filled with tooth-colored resin to give you an invisible restoration. This painless procedure is wonderful for children – and adults.
Tired of dark metal or ‘mercury’ fillings in your molars? Concerned about the effect of metals on your overall health? A new-technology, tooth-colored composite resin filling is the best way to restore small-to-moderate sized cavities and to replace old metal fillings that have failed. The white filling is much more conservative and tooth-friendly than materials used in the past and a mercury free dentistry option. Your new fillings are so natural looking, you won’t even be able to tell you ever had a cavity.
The leading advancement in dentistry in the 21st Century is the Cerec 3D. This computerized technology allows your teeth to be restored with all-ceramic inlays, onlays or crowns in a single visit. No more temporaries or nasty tasting impressions. No second visit requiring you to get numb again. No waiting 2 to 3 weeks for your final product to come back from the dental lab. Instead, you can have it all taken care of instantly, and with a natural, esthetic porcelain material. There’s no metal at all, so the restoration looks great for years, with no side effects of irritated gums or metal allergies. Your teeth are healthy, strong and look completely natural. What’s more, Dr. Winters is so good at using this technology, he actually teaches other dentists how to use CEREC for their patients too. Visit Cerec Online to learn more about this new technology.
