Saying Farewell To Cavities

When Dr. Roberson diagnoses you with a cavity, your best solution is to schedule a visit for a filling right away. This surprisingly simple, effective process offers beautiful results and restored oral health.

What To Expect From A Dental Filling

When you suffer from a cavity, you can restore your oral health and comfort by visiting Dr. Roberson and our friendly team for a dental filling. During a filling, we will numb your tooth and surrounding tissues.
Dr. Roberson will clean out the decayed tooth tissue and bacteria from within your tooth. He will polish the inside of the opening, which he will then fill with one of the following beautiful materials:


    This synthetic resin filling is the material typically used for “white” or “tooth-colored” fillings. We will color match the composite to the color of your surrounding tooth for a natural finish.


    Made of silicate glass powder, this filling is typically used in visible front teeth that do not experience as much pressure as back teeth. This material is also color-matched to the surrounding tooth, and as a smart filling, can be recharged with fluoride for additional cavity protection.
    They bond to tooth and roots, don't leak and they release fluoride that gives the tooth resistance to decay and the fluoride is rechargeable.


The Advantages Of Dental Fillings

Choosing tooth-colored dental fillings will allow you to recover from tooth decay without a visible trace of ever having suffered from a cavity. Look over the additional following advantages of choosing a composite or ionomer filling with our team at Scott A. Roberson, DDS, FAGD:

    Our fillings are practically invisible, so your smile’s appearance does not change.
    Composite and glass ionomer both bond directly to tooth tissue – this promotes exceptional stability.
    Compared to metal fillings, which enlarge and contract, our fillings do not place your tooth in danger of fractures.
    Our tooth-colored fillings will not cause temperature-related sensitivity like metal fillings.
    Our fillings are safe for both pregnant women and individuals allergic to metals.
