Fillings have several advantages. Composite fillings have advantages over gold and other fillings too,including aesthetic advantages.
Getting fillings in Austin is now easier than ever thanks to sedatives. The dentist will first numb the area with the help of anesthesia. Next, the dentist will either use a laser or a drill to carefully remove the decayed part.
Next, Dr. Trivedi will check to make sure all the decay has been removed. It may be a bit difficult to see it with naked eyes so instruments may be used. Once all the decay has been fully removed, Dr. Trivedi will eradicate all debris and clean the cavity to make space for composite filling. In case the decay is too close to the root, Dr. Trivedi may take the necessary steps to protect the nerve by putting a linear layer. However, this is not required in all of the cases. Next, the dentist will place the tooth colored filling in layers and then use a special light to harden all these layers and then polish the filling to give it a neat look. The polishing includes trimming off excess material to give the tooth or filling its desired look.

Highly recommend Dr. Trivedi and HFD if you’re looking for a new Austin dentist. He takes a consultative approach and is clearly passionate about what he does and the health of his patients. First time I’ve actually fellen asleep in a dentist chair while getting cavities repaired. Front desk and support staff are also great!
Perfect experience! I picked Honest Family Dental based on their reviews and I see why now they have such a high rating! I was so nervous, but every aspect of my visit was welcoming, encouraging and of course honest! Dr. Ameet Trivedi is fabulous!
