Dental Restoration in Johnstown, PA
Advanced Dentistry with a Hometown Touch
As the years go by, your teeth can become damaged for various reasons. Sometimes, you may suffer from tooth decay or may be involved in an accident that damages your teeth. Having damaged or decayed teeth can really knock down your sense of self-confidence and well-being. Here at Pursel Dental, we can help bring back your smile with our dental restorations services.
Treat Decay Early
The best way to treat tooth decay is to find and address it as soon as possible. At our practice, we use laser technology to perform detection of dental cavities. We can then advise you about appropriate preventative strategies or conservative treatments.
Our laser has the ability to locate cavities that would even go unnoticed on an X-ray. There is a reason that the DIAGNOdent from KaVo has been nicknamed “the magic wand” in our office. This state-of-the-art tool allows us to get incredibly precise results without needing to expose you to X-rays. Call Pursel Dental today in Johnstown, PA, and we can help to restore your smile!
Fillings are the most common type of dental restoration that we do here at Pursel Dental. The majority of people will need a filling at some point in their lives. The most common reason that you may need to get a filling is due to tooth decay or chipping to your tooth.
We offer various kinds of fillings depending on your needs. For example, if you want to have a natural-looking smile, we have tooth-colored fillings that are virtually impossible for other people to notice unless you tell them you have them. Here are some of the materials we can use for your fillings:
- Ceramics: Ceramic fillings are tooth-colored fillings that are highly resistant to staining and abrasion in comparison to composite resin
- Composite resin: These fillings cost more than amalgam fillings; however, they match the natural color of your teeth. Composite fillings can be bonded directly to the tooth, which makes the tooth stronger than it would be with an amalgam filling.
- Glass ionomer: This type of filling is often used if you need fillings in your front teeth, it can also be used on other teeth in the mouth. It is typically used if you have a lot of tooth decay that extends below the gum.
