At Legacy Smiles we make it our mission to keep your mouth healthy and your smile looking great all through life. You can bet we’ll be here to detect any emerging problems early enough to provide conservative restorative dentistry treatments to get you back on track.
With the help of newfangled technology, we can spot tooth decay that others might have missed. Our DIAGNOdent cavity detection equipment is just one example of how we are willing to invest in your continued health and happiness. We also employ digital X-rays, cone beam CT scanners, state-of-the-art chairs and delivery systems, intraoral cameras, laser technology, and more. In short, we do everything in our power to stay in-tune with your needs.
Once we know what is going on, we can create a dental filling to stop to the spreading decay in its tracks. The good news is that fillings are now better than ever in our Billings, Montana office.
The New Face Of Cavity Treatments
If you have ever had a cavity before, you probably remember the ugly metallic fillings that dentists everywhere were forced to work with in order to heal your smile. They showed up as splotches every time you opened your mouth and they contained mercury, which was bad for anyone with metal allergies.
But, like we said, things have gotten better at the dentist’s office, when it comes to restorative treatments. These days we can set you up with a safer, more effective, better-looking alternative to conventional amalgam fillings.
Composite dental fillings are what we now use to get the job done.
Mercury-Free Is The Way To Be
We are always a little ahead of the curve at Legacy Smiles. In fact, our office has provided metal-free fillings for 10+ years at this point. In that time, we have found that since composite is made from a mix of plastics, it has distinct advantages. For one thing, with these fillings our team can blend the material to more closely match the natural shade of your smile. From a cosmetic standpoint, no one will ever know you’ve had cavities.
When a composite filling is placed, it is just as effective as an amalgam filling, lasts longer, and looks better. What’s not to like, right?
But there is more good news for you: 15 years ago, Dr. Stuart made our practice the first one in the Billings, MT area to get the Waterlase laser. This laser allows us to offer a more gentle kind of dental care with no shot fillings, gum reshaping treatment, periodontal treatment and more. Whatever is going on, you can rest assured that we will turn it back around the easy way.
