Fillings and Sealants in Houston, Texas

Even if you clean your teeth thoroughly, there may still be plaque and food particles stuck in places that are difficult to get. The tiny fissures and grooves in your teeth make it tough for your toothbrush to reach everywhere that it needs to. Tooth decay can form in certain spots if they are ignored for too long. When you get sealants from Lovett Dentistry, your teeth will be more protected against decay and cavities.

Dental Fillings and Sealants for Healthier Teeth

Dentists use dental sealants, which are plastic resins that harden in the deep depressions of your teeth. After having their small crevices filled, teeth are less likely to accumulate plaque. Dental sealants improve the efficiency and convenience of tooth brushing.

  • Adults — Tooth surfaces without decay that have deep grooves or depressions.
  • Children and teenagers — As soon as the six-year molars (the first permanent back teeth) appear or any time throughout the cavity prone years of 6 through 16.
  • Baby teeth — Occasionally done if teeth have deep grooves or depressions and the child is cavity-prone.

Sealants have a potential five-year lifespan, yet it's not uncommon to find them in place on adults. Your new dental sealants may last longer with proper home care and routine visits to our Houston, Texas dentists.

Composite Fillings

When a tooth has decay, cracks, fractures, etc., composite fillings (fillings that blend in with the tooth's color) are used to restore the tooth. Tooth decay or damage will be removed, and then a tooth-colored composite filling will be bonded in its place.

Composite fillings are preferable for usage in front teeth and other highly visible portions of the teeth due to their natural appearance and the ease with which they may be matched to the color of natural teeth.

  • Chips or cracks in teeth
  • Closing gaps between teeth
  • Broken teeth
  • Decayed teeth
  • Worn teeth
