Cavities & Fillings

Fillings and How They Work

Learn about how dental cavity fillings in Bellflower work

Dental cavity fillings are needed as a response to tooth decay, but how does tooth decay happen? The mouth is full of different bacteria, and our teeth, gums, and tongues are where the bacteria live. There are good types of bacteria and bad types of bacteria. The bad bacteria are what causes tooth decay in Bellflower, and are what eats away at your teeth. When bad bacteria are left in the mouth too long, it pairs with the sugars you are putting in your mouth and creates an acid. Over time the acid eats away at your teeth causing a hole, or dental cavity. If you or a family member is experiencing pain because of tooth decay, please give us a call so we can help! Appointment scheduling is available 24/7 by phone.

What You Should Know About Dental Cavity Fillings

Our team can help you get the best dental cavity fillings in Bellflower

A lot of the time, a dental cavity filling in Bellflower is the first time someone has actually experienced dental work other than a regular cleaning. When this is the case, a dental cavity filling can be quite frightening if you don’t know what to expect. However, there isn’t anything to worry about because a filling is typically painless, with the exception of cavities close to your gum line. With that being said, our professional and caring staff here at Bellflower Dental Group will do what it takes to make sure you are completely comfortable, even if it requires sedation. We want you to get the dental treatment you need in the most comfortable way possible. When it comes to the length of time it takes to fill a cavity, the actual filling process takes about 15 minutes. The area around the decayed tooth will be numbed with a gel before the filling takes place. Once your filling is completed, depending on the filling material, your filling should be expected to last at least 5 years, and in most cases many years longer. The important thing to remember is to take care of your teeth by brushing, flossing, and getting your regular dental cleaning twice a year. This will help you defend your mouth from tooth decay in Bellflower, and also prevent more dental cavities from occurring. If you have any questions about tooth decay or dental cavity fillings, please feel free to call us. We would love to help!

    This dental group surpasses my expectations! Amazing staff! My experience at Bellflower Dental Group was outstanding. Get bored during waiting? Don't worry! You can kill time by watching a movie in their comfy, amazing movie theater, or even get a massage! They even give out free cookies! I always have fun just by waiting for my name to be called. I highly recommend this dental group. I come to them for my braces, their ortho is incredible, the highlight of this dental group. The staff is amazing, their employees are so kind and take the time to perfect your braces.

    I love this dental office!

    Rosa V.
    I love this dental office! I have been coming here for years. It is a one-stop-shop! You can get your x-rays, cleaning, braces, labs, dentures, toothbrushes, and more all right here. They offer a movie room, 15 minute massages, child care, coffee, tea, and snacks! The weekends included face painting and balloon art for the kids. The staff is great, and they try to work with you if you need a payment plan. I think most insurance carriers are accepted. Never had any issues with any of the work done here!
