What are
Dental Fillings?

A filling is a treatment for a tooth damaged by a cavity. It restores the tooth back to its normal function and shape by using special materials and techniques. It’s also one of the most common procedures that takes place in the dental office, so there’s no need to worry, especially if you are maintaining a good brushing and flossing routine!

Dental fillings are generally used by Dentists to repair certain types of tooth damage or decay.

Fillings are used to repair cavities, cracked or broken teeth, and teeth worn down from nail-biting or tooth grinding.

Teeth can be filled with gold; porcelain; silver amalgam (which consists of mercury mixed with silver, tin, zinc, and copper); or tooth-colored, plastic, and materials called composite resin fillings. The location of tooth decay, material costs, your insurance, and ultimately our recommendation of treatment will help determine which filling is right for you.

What are
Dental Crowns?

A crown is an aesthetic covering or a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over another tooth or implant to provide it stability. Crowns are generally used to improve the strength or appearance of teeth. When a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth, a crown is a good option. Crowns are also used to restore the shape and size of chipped or damaged teeth. They are typically bonded to the tooth using dental cement.

You might need a crown for any of the following circumstances:

  • To cover discolored or misshapen teeth
  • To support a tooth with a large filling
  • To cover a dental implant
  • To support a worn out, cracked or broken tooth

Dental crowns are a relatively low-pain procedure that is quick, easy, and will leave you smiling in no time.

What are
Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are false permanent teeth that are used for filling dental gaps caused by missing teeth. They are usually anchored to the adjacent healthy teeth with cement and resin. The health of the teeth, position, as well as the amount and health of the surrounding bone determines if a dental bridge is suitable to replace missing teeth or if dental implants should be considered.
If your smile is missing teeth, due to poor oral health, altercation, accidents, or any reason, then you may be interested in a dental bridge. While generally considered a short term solution, new dentistry technology has allowed for bridges to become long term solutions to filling the tooth-gap.

Yes, we offer implant supported bridges. Call our office to learn more.

What are
Root Canals?

Root canal is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or has become infected. During a root canal, the inside of the root of the tooth is cleaned out and sealed. Without treatment the tissue surrounding the tooth becomes infected and abscesses can form.

Common symptoms that indicate you might need a root canal treatment:

  • Tender gums which might also be swollen
  • Extreme sensitivity to cold and hot temperatures
  • Discoloration of the tooth
  • Severe toothache

Root canals, without the proper care, can be a painful procedure. At Hillsboro Dental, this is why we use modern pain-numbing techniques to make your dental care as comfortable as possible. We offer a variety of methods and techniques to reduce discomfort so that you can leave our clinic smiling.
