Are you experiencing tooth or mouth pain? You may have developed a cavity. Left untreated, your cavity may worsen, resulting in acute pain or even tooth loss.
At Mt. Scott Family Dental, Dr. Howe and Dr. Donnelly use durable, attractive tooth-colored fillings to help patients restore form and function to compromised teeth.
During your next checkup, Dr. Donnelly or Dr. Howe will assess the integrity of your existing dental work and scan your teeth for decay with our non-invasive DIAGNOdent laser. If you need a new filling, we'll bond a small amount of tooth-colored composite resin to your tooth, beautifully renewing your smile. Composite resin is strong, long-lasting, and resistant to decay, so your smile will be strengthened and protected for years to come.
Many patients choose to replace their old metal fillings with tooth-colored restorations because of safety concerns or deterioration. If you choose to do this, our dentists will gently remove your metal fillings and safely extract any potentially harmful compounds with an amalgam separator before disposing of the metal. This forward-thinking and earth-friendly practice earned our office a Best Business Award from the city of Portland.
Call Mt. Scott Family Dental today to schedule your tooth-colored fillings appointment with Dr. Howe or Dr. Donnelly. We provide Happy Valley with exemplary service and one-of-a-kind care for terrific smiles.
