Yeah I had some fillings removed. I had one small cavity after removing one and they cleaned it out right away. But these fillings were probably 20 years old and so it was time to get them replaced. So it's worked out well so far. I didn't have to come back for any adjustments which, if you've had fillings done in the past, sometimes you gotta go back for adjustments because your bite is off or you're having some pain in there. I didn't have to do that. My bite's been great. I was having problems before that actually and so with ... having trouble keeping my teeth clean because it was areas in there that food was getting caught up on. And I'm very conscientious about my teeth and my breath so they were able to fix that and I appreciate that.
What's really outstanding, and I'll say this and tell them, I'm very honest. If I didn't like something I'd say it. But the customer service is just outstanding. Everybody remembers you by name, which to me is outstanding because they have so man customers come in. But they explain to you, especially the billing process, what your insurance covers. And they tell you exactly how it is and there's no ... I never had any hidden fees that I wasn't happy with, or any hidden fees period. So I like that too, by the way.

Enjoy An Attractive Solution That Will Keep Your Smile Safe
When it comes to filling a cavity at Davenport Dental Group, you have two choices. While traditional tooth filling material is amalgam, we primarily use composite resin fillings. Amalgam (metal) fillings are strong but conspicuous, while composite fillings offer a durable and aesthetically appealing alternative. Because they are tooth-colored, they blend right in with your natural smile.
A cavity is a small area of decay in your tooth. We use special technology to locate tiny cavities and fill them before they become larger areas of decay. Without treatment, your tooth might require a larger restoration, like a dental crown. You can also develop a toothache if your cavity grows, but tooth fillings does not hurt. To prevent dental pain and more expensive solutions, have a cavity filled while it is still small.
