Dallas, TX Dentist
Dentistry and dental materials have gone through an explosion of progress in the last two decades, which have produced some incredible new filling materials and techniques. Dr. Herwig uses a combination of tooth-colored materials to rebuild decayed or broken teeth and replace existing defective fillings. This rebuilding process includes a fluoride base and an enamel-like layer that, when activated with a bright light, turns hard to reinforce the tooth. Local anesthesia is normally administered, and the tooth may be slightly sensitive afterwards for a few hours or days. Usually, aspirin or ibuprofen will alleviate this, but some teeth may be slightly more sensitive indefinitely.
