Digital X-Rays

Digital dental x-rays can be taken more quickly, with less discomfort and considerably less radiation than the old style conventional film x-rays. Dentistry By the Bay uses the latest in technology so you can rest assured that taking x-rays will be an easy and painfree process.

The images are instantly captured and displayed on a computer screen where they can be enlarged and easily viewed by the dentist and patient.

Fillings

A dental restoration, or dental filling, is a dental restorative material used to restore the function, integrity and form of a missing tooth structure. The structural loss typically is a result of caries (decay), or external trauma. Dental restorations may be made out of a variety of materials including composite fillings, and porcelain or gold restorations.

Sealants

Tooth sealants are a white acrylic used to fill and seal the deep grooves on the chewing surface of your teeth. They prevent plaque buildup and decay in an area that is difficult to clean. Sealants are easy to apply and typically last for several years.
