Palmdale Dental Fillings
If you need to get dental fillings, you should visit us at ValleyWide Dental. At our dental practice, one of our expert and highly trained cosmetic dentists can provide you with Palmdale dental fillings that virtually cannot be seen once they are installed in your teeth. Additionally, they will leave your teeth stronger after treatment at our office.
If you have a pain in your tooth when you eat something sweet, you may well have a dental cavity. As we all know, dental cavity will never go away by itself, and must be addressed by our dentist. Our dentist will be able to easily determine whether or not you have this tooth problem, and if so, can easily treat the dental cavity and provide you with attractive Palmdale dental fillings. At our dental practice, we support the movement toward totally mercury-free fillings. For this reason, we are happy to be able to provide patients with tooth-colored porcelain inlays to fix dental cavities. Silver amalgam fillings are basically unattractive, and can result in your tooth having a weaker structure. Additionally, the edges of the fillings can wear down and become weak and or break. When this occurs, the cavity may develop once again. Silver fillings contain 50% mercury. This mercury can corrode, and ultimately cause stains on your teeth and gums. At our dental practice we are happy to replace silver fillings with tooth-colored ceramic restorations. Our tooth-colored restorations are bonded to the teeth. They create a tight and superior fit and are used where much of the tooth structure has been lost. This restoration will allow the tooth to remain intact, and it will be much stronger after our treatment. The resin used in tooth-colored restorations also helps to prevent tooth decay since it contains fluoride.

Palmdale CA Dental Checkup
If you want to make sure that your teeth and gums stay healthy, then you will want to come to our dental practice, ValleyWide Dental, for biannual dental exams and cleanings. A Palmdale CA dental checkup with one of our expert dentists, including Dr. Robert Haze, will go a long way toward ensuring your excellent dental health.
When a patient comes to our dental practice for a Palmdale CA dental checkup, the health of their entire mouth will be assessed. Our dentist will review your teeth and x-rays to make sure that there are no cavities developing on or between the teeth. Our dentist will also check your teeth for any signs of cracked fillings, cracked dental restorations, or signs of tooth grinding which can appear as chips or even as loose teeth. Your mouth will be thoroughly checked for any signs of oral cancer. Our dentist will make sure that there are no problems developing with your bite which can be caused by TMJ. Our dentist will also examine your gums to make sure that they are healthy and that you are not developing gingivitis or gum disease. If our dentist finds that you have gingivitis, it will be recommended that you have several regular dental cleanings over the coming months to help your gums return to good health. If it is found that deep pockets have developed between your teeth and gums, it means that you have gum disease. At this point, you will need to have a scaling and root planing treatment which will remove all plaque, tartar, food debris, and bacteria from these deep pockets. During this periodontal treatment, any gum infection can be topically treated, or our dentist can prescribe oral antibiotics, as well. Biannual dental exams will make sure that any dental problems are caught early, saving you future time in our dentist’s chair, and saving you money, as well.
