Dental cavities are created when bacteria attack your enamel. In the past, cavities were treated with an amalgam material, which is a mixture of different metals, like mercury or silver. Now we know that amalgam fillings do not adhere very well with the teeth and the mercury may be hazardous to your health. At Elegant Smiles in Las Vegas, NV, our dentists use tooth-colored fillings made with a composite resin to fill cavities and protect the tooth. They also can take out metal fillings and replace them with composite resin fillings for a safer and better-looking treatment for cavities.

Composite resin tooth-colored fillings usually fill in the decayed area once it's been cleaned out by one of our dental experts. Composite resin is a versatile material that may be used to treat other problems with your teeth, such as chips or wear on the enamel by teeth grinding (bruxism). Since the composite resin is colored to match your natural teeth, fillings may be placed on both the front and back teeth for a great appearance. Getting a filling with composite resin at Elegant Smiles is typically an easy treatment. The treatment area will be numbed to help you feel more comfortable. Stronger forms of sedation may be discussed for any fears or anxieties to help keep you relaxed during the procedure. After you're prepared, the affected enamel can be treated using a special drill that we will select based on where the cavity is located and the amount of decay. Once the enamel is treated and the area is disinfected, the area will be replaced with the composite resin and hardened. You should be able to return to your day after your composite filling is done, but you might notice a sensitivity to cold and hot foods and beverages for a few days. You can use over-the-counter pain medication to treat any discomfort; however, you should not have any major problems. If after a few days the filling feels high or uneven, please contact our office. Your tooth-colored filling should be cleaned by following a normal home oral care routine with daily brushing and flossing. At your annual exam, our dentist will check your filling to decide if it should be repaired or replaced at any point.

These guys are great! Starting from the receptionist, to the dental assistants all the way to Drs. Huynh and Phan. Everyone treats you so well. They make sure you know what's happening (if you wanna know, at least) and that you're comfortable the whole time. They've even taken care to put in amenities for you: like a massage dentist chair and a TV right above it for when your teeth are getting worked on. It's a great office, great practice.

This dentist office is truly a gem in Las Vegas! Dr. Eileen and her husband are so nice and competent. The receptionists always promptly call back and they will go above and beyond to squeeze you in if you need an emergency repair for a broken tooth for example. They won't try to sell you treatments you don't need and they don't lie to their patients. Been to so many bad dentist offices in the past, they are one of the best in Las Vegas. Prices are very reasonable too! Highly recommend this dentist office. Thank you Dr. Eileen!!

Thank you for the wonderful service I received today😊. I needed to get a lot of work done and was nervous about potential pain, because of my past experiences with other dentist offices. Dr. Huynh is the best dentist I have ever had, and treated this cry baby with the most gentle hands. She individually cleaned each tooth in my mouth, and I didn’t even need numbing gel lol. Everywhere else I have been in the past left me traumatized and in pain, so what a relief it was to be given that extra reassurance and perfect end results. I had an awesome teeth cleaning, and was numbed up perfectly to have my fillings put in. I look forward to all of my future teeth cleanings and check ups with Dr. Huynh!!!
