We provide dental fillings, which allow Dr. Ronald C. Russo to fill the hole in your tooth after cleaning out a cavity.

When treating a cavity, our team will use a local anesthetic to numb the tooth. Next, your dentist will use a drill or laser and remove the infected and decayed area. There will be measures taken to make sure all of the decay is gone, and then he will check the area and make sure he cleaned all of the debris and bacteria. If the decay is near the root, your dentist might add a liner before he fills the tooth. Dr. Ronald C. Russo will then insert the filling in layers. Once the filling is applied, he will use a special light to harden the material throughout each layer. The treatment will end with him trimming and shaping the material to make it a natural shape that fits with your bite.

There are many different types of fillings that your dentist may recommend, including gold, porcelain, silver amalgam, and composite, and we suggest you talk to your dentist to see which type of dental filling in Scottsdale, Arizona, is best for you and your individual situation. If you have any questions about fillings, please feel free to call us!
