Cavities can cause small holes in your back teeth, the molars and premolars, and need to be treated so they don’t cause bigger holes and in extreme cases, tooth loss. Your dentist will use a dental filling to fill in the hole and restore the health of the tooth. The filling will help prevent further decay from building up on the tooth. Fillings can also be used to repair teeth that are cracked or broken.

Signs You Need A Dental Filling

  • Tooth pain when biting or chewing food
  • Tooth is sensitive to cold or hot foods or drinks
  • Floss tears in a certain spot
  • A fractured, chipped or broken tooth

Often, patients don’t realize they have a cavity as the symptoms can be subtle or unnoticeable. That’s why it is important to keep up with your regular dental checkups so your dentist can catch any issues before they become bigger problems. If your dentists suspects a cavity they will take x-rays to determine if it is indeed a filling. Cavities are seen as dark areas on the tooth in an x-ray.

Filling Procedure

In the case of a cavity filling, your dentist will first administer local anesthesia to the area around the tooth. The dentist will then clean out any decay from the tooth and clean the area. It will then be shaped to prepare it for the filling.

The dentist will then fill it with a strong composite resin. The composite resin is matched to the color of your teeth to achieve a natural appearance. The material is then hardened and shaped in order to maintain the integrity of your bite. To finish, the dentist will polish the tooth.

If you have questions or concerns about fillings please call our office at (810) 736-9778 to speak to one of our caring staff.

BEST BURTON DENTISTS
I made my first phone call, and Connie was so nice and informative. They did not accept my insurance, so I went to a place at Dort and Atherton that did..... Bad move on my part. A little while into my 2 hour wait/appointment I made the phone call back over to Dr Bundy office and talked to Connie again, I asked if I could come over to them and pay out of pocket instead....... She said come on over now. I up and left and no one said a word at the other place. I felt so comfortable as soon as I walked into the waitingroom. Both girls behind the counter greeted me with a hello and a smile. Jen came and lead me to the room that I would meet my New dentist! All I can say is they took great care of me when I was in desperate need. Thank you so much!

I walked in for my first appointment yesterday and was greeted by their friendly staff. I spent over 2 hours in their office getting my X-rays taken, teeth cleaned, and finally my examination by Dr. Bundy. There wasn't a dull moment while I was there, they are all extremely friendly people who are passionate about what they do.

What a wonderful dental group, I have had bad experience with other dentists so I am always leary about going to someone new but I felt so comfortable with the dental hygienist Mandi and we talked like we were good friends and she explained everything to me what she was doing and no pain at all cleaning my teeth. Dr Rosenbrook is so nice and also made me feel really comfortable and he also explained my treatment plan, Melissa is really nice as well. If you need a good dentist Dr. Rosenbrook is the place to go.

My husband avoided going to the dentist for years because of traumatic experiences in the past. He has recently started going to today's dental comfort and he likes them a lot. I have severe anxiety of the dentist and they have made my experiences with them pleasant and put my mind at ease. They are also amazing with our daughter when she has to go.

My experience at this dentist office was amazing! I scheduled an appointment for me and my two children (ages 3 & 8). The receptionist answered all of my questions I had about my dental insurance with no problem. The hygienist were all wonderful, knowledgeable and friendly. My teeth felt great after my cleaning. My 3 year old that I was nervous about had a great experience as well as my 8 year old. We will be going to Today’s Dental Comfort for all of our dental needs. If you are in need of a dentist, you need to try this place out.

Great place - I wouldn't go anywhere else!!! I really hate going to the dentist, so I've put things off until it's been an emergency. This place was recommended to me, and they got me right in right away when I was in immense pain. The staff is friendly and comforting, and worked with me so that I could take care of the most pressing concerns while staying within my budget. I brought my 9 year old daughter there yesterday to get her first fillings, and they were just amazing in the way they explained everything and made her feel so comfortable! I also recommended them to a friend who's dentist wanted her to wait a week for a cracked tooth. Again, they got her in that day, of course. I really can't say enough about the amazing staff and flexible hours - highly recommended!!

Today’s Dental Comfort is an AMAZING office! As with most individuals, my husband dreaded going to the dentist. He had painful experiences in the past from other dentist. Dr. Bundy and his team were welcoming and most of all left my husband with spectacular services that were pain free! We take our entire family, including the kids to this office and could not be more pleased. If you are looking for a knowledgeable dentist who consistently provides great services, Dr. Bundy is the right choice!

I was worried about my implants and my Dentist was on vacation. Luckily, I was able to get into "Today's Dental Comfort" right away. I was impressed with the high level of care and professionalism they demonstrated. What a wonderful dentist and nice office staff! Thankfully, I was alright and my jaw was just sore because I had jammed some food down into my gum tissue. I gladly paid for my visit and left. Then about a month later I also received a refund of 61 dollars. I did not expect it but I was sure happy they sent it to me! If you are looking for a great dental clinic I highly recommend them.

If this isn't your dentist's office, it should be! Top notch care, super friendly staff! I called as a new patient because a filling had fell out. Connie answered my call and invited me to the office immediately! I was at the office in literally 20 minutes! They sent me right back, and Chelsea took my x-rays. She explained everything in great detail with a wonderful attitude. In came Dr. Rosenbrook, a really nice dentist with a great sense of humor, who went over the minimal procedure. He fixed my filling in a flash, proposed a treatment plan, and answered my questions with patience. I felt like he had all the time in the world to talk with me, which made me feel even better. I would definitely recommend giving them a call if you value sincerity. A wonderful dentist's office!
