Fillings

Tooth Fillings in Albuquerque

Effective Treatment from Our Skilled Albuquerque Dentists

Cavities are one of the most common dental health issues and most people, at one time or another, needs to have one filled. Tooth fillings are an effective treatment for more serious dental issues as well, including cracked and worn teeth. If you are suffering from any of these issues, it's recommended that you see a dentist as soon as possible.

At Dental House, our experienced and friendly Albuquerque family dentists have treated countless cavities and provided even more filings for patients who needed them. We're ready to walk you through the filing process, answer any questions and, if necessary, implement a reliable filing in your affected tooth.

To book an appointment, contact our offices at (505) 835-2322 today. We accept most insurance plans.

Why Teeth Need Filings

The enamel on our teeth is incredibly strong and meant to withstand a lifetime of eating, drinking, talking, etc. However, our teeth can be exposed to bacteria that can decay the enamel and cause the small holes that we call cavities.

This bacteria thrives on:

  • Milk
  • Soda
  • Bread
  • Cereal
  • Fruit
  • Candy
  • Cake
  • Other carbohydrates

This bacteria feeds off these high-sugar foods when they remain on your teeth. When they do, they produce plaque and acids that can not only harm your outer enamel but your inner enamel (called dentin). When this happens, cavities occur and need to be filed in to prevent further damage to the affected tooth.

"Will I Need a Novocain Shot?"

The first thing most patients with a cavity or cracked tooth want to know is whether or not they will need a Novocain shot. The truth is oral anesthetics have come a long way over the years and not every patient needs a shot to properly numb their mouth before dental work.

At Dental House, our promise is this: our patients only receive invasive treatments (like shots) when it is absolutely necessary. Otherwise, our dentists are happy to provide other options, like topical anesthetics, to help complete your dental work.

Come as patients, leave as family: that's our mission here at Dental House. Contact our offices today to schedule an appointment.
