Tooth decay can destroy your teeth, but dental fillings can halt decay and restore your tooth for full functionality. At Smile Brighter Willoughby Hills, we offer patients discrete tooth filling without any drilling for a comfortable experience that can save your smile.
A high-tech alternative to the drill
For patients with dental anxiety, the mere sound of the drill is enough to cause panic. Micro Air Abrasion is a quiet, gentle solution for removing tooth decay. It also allows Dr. Stern to perform the procedure without using local anesthetics and preserving more of your tooth for conservative treatment to restore your oral health.
Mirco Air Abrasion uses air to deliver abrasive, microscopic sand particles to the damaged tooth. The process is totally painless and will only take a matter of minutes. Once the decay is removed, Dr. Stern will utilize biocompatible, tooth-colored resin to rebuild your tooth’s structure, so you can eat and smile without noticing your restoration. The procedure is suitable for patients of all ages, and in many cases, it allows them to perform fillings with no drilling.
What to expect with No Drilling Fillings
During your procedure, you will wear protective eyewear, and Dr. Stern will apply a protective shield to the neighboring teeth and gums. He will use a small preparation tip to blast away decay and clear out the infection. Next, he will layer in the dental bonding to rebuild the structure of your tooth and shape it for a natural appearance. He will use a curing light to harden the filling, and the procedure will be over in a matter of minutes.
Dr. Stern has over 30 years of experience providing care for patients at all levels of need, from simple fillings to complex restorations. Contact our office in Willoughby Hills today at
