Peak Dental Arts: Our Dental Fillings Process

Here at Peak Dental Arts, we’re all about quality, which is why Dr. Craig C. Lanik, D.D.S., uses tooth-colored “resin” for our fillings. Not only does it wear just like your natural teeth, but it also makes your dental care experience genuinely top-notch.

Prepare Your Tooth

Dr. Lanik will start by gently numbing the area with a topical anesthetic or minor injection to ensure you’re comfortable and at ease throughout the procedure.

Remove The Cavity

With special tools, Dr. Lanik skillfully removes your tooth’s decayed or damaged portions, clearing away any plaque.

Filling and Seal

Next, Dr. Lanik fills the open area of your tooth with tooth-colored materials like resin. We may also add an adhesive or composite material, such as dental sealants, to protect and seal your teeth from future decay.

Polish and Refine

Finally, Dr. Lanik smooths out any rough edges and polishes your tooth to perfection, making it look and feel utterly natural. The procedure is quick and easy, and you’ll be free to eat and drink later the same day once the numbing has worn off.

Why We Love Resin Fillings 

You might be wondering which type of filling is best for your teeth. At Peak Dental Arts, we’re passionate about tooth-colored restorations. 

Composite resin, made from fine quartz or glass, creates a natural, tooth-colored material that looks fabulous and functions beautifully. Resin is kind to your teeth and surrounding areas because it doesn’t expand. This means it stays put, making it simple for us to fill, cover, or protect the exact space we need to. Plus, resin fillings are super-fast, so you’ll be in and out in a single appointment.

Our resin even contains fluoride, which helps prevent further decay and future tooth troubles. What’s not to love?

Frequently Asked Questions about Dental Fillings

We’re all about progress, so we’ve said goodbye to silver linings in favor of cutting-edge resin. Unfortunately, silver linings are a poorer quality filling and can easily weaken and wear down. When this happens, the tooth can be vulnerable to cavities again. In addition, the mercury in silver linings can also leak into the gums.

Our practice is mercury-free, and we’re committed to using only the best quality materials that won’t weaken or wear down your teeth. So, you don’t have to worry about experiencing dental anxiety once you step into our clinic!

Absolutely! If you have silver linings on your teeth, we’ll happily replace them with our tooth-colored restorations.

A dental filling effectively treats a cavity by removing the decayed part of the tooth and stopping bacteria from spreading to your gums and neighboring teeth. We protect the tooth from future decay and bacteria invasion by filling it.

You’ll be in and out in no time! Dental fillings typically take less than an hour. Our dental team will first prepare you for the filling, and then Dr. Lanik will work their magic to complete the procedure. Afterward, as part of our commitment to quality dental care, we’ll provide guidance on how to care for your new filling and share essential cleaning tips to help you minimize the need for dental fillings in the future.

To keep cavities at bay, practice good oral hygiene, like brushing and flossing twice a day. Avoid sticky candy and sugary drinks, such as soda, and visit our office for regular dental cleanings to catch cavities early on. Together, we’ll help you maintain a beautiful smile and good oral health!
