Tooth-Colored Fillings in Houston, TX

Cavities are a common dental concern that develops when bacteria erode your dental enamel. In the past, cavities were filled with an amalgam material, which is a mixture of different metals, like mercury or silver. We now know that amalgam fillings do not adhere well to the teeth and the mercury can be hazardous to your overall health. Palmer Dental Group of Houston offers tooth-colored fillings made from a composite resin to fill cavities and protect the tooth. Dr. Palmer can also remove old metal fillings from patients in Houston, TX and apply composite resin fillings for a seamless smile.

Receiving a tooth-colored filling at Palmer Dental Group of Houston is usually a quick process. The area surrounding the cavity will be numbed with a local anesthetic to help you feel more comfortable. Stronger forms of sedation can be considered if you have fears or dental anxieties to keep you relaxed during the treatment. Once you are ready, the decayed enamel is removed with a special dental drill that Dr. Palmer will select based on where the cavity is located and the amount of decay. Once the enamel is cleared away and the area is cleaned, the cavity will be filled with the composite resin and set with a special light. The composite resin will be polished so it feels natural and matches your other teeth.

I don't normally write reviews, but my experience with Dr. Palmer has been so positive that I felt I needed to share what a gem his dental group has been. Everyone at his office is kind and informative and Dr. Palmer was very thorough when examining my cavities and explained in great detail what my options were for them. I've had some horrible fillings before, but my fillings from Dr. Palmer have worked out great (haven't fallen out, retainer fits, etc). I guess this is all to say that the folks here won't scam you and go above and beyond.

I had two appointments recently, one for X-rays and a cleaning (some of the cleaning was done with a laser, which I didn’t really even feel). The second visit was for some fillings and a digital scan. Both times, the staff was friendly and professional, and Dr. Palmer took the time to explain everything clearly and answer all my questions. The facility itself is clean and has modern tech/dentistry devices, and they offer many other services like clear aligners which I’m interested in. It's definitely worth checking out if you're looking for a good dentist!
