Composite Fillings


Richard J Bianco DMD offers an array of dental advancements, including composite fillings. This means you can get your cavities, as well as any other smaller hollow areas in your teeth, filled with composite fillings. Composite fillings are made from resins that are matched to your tooth’s color – so they become invisible when applied.

There are many other amazing benefits of Composite fillings. Composite fillings also provide an excellent seal on the affected area, so that tooth decay can be prevented. The factors that go into Dr. Richard J Bianco, DMD’s decision to use composite fillings include:

  • The size of the area that needs to be filled
  • The location of the affected area in the mouth (i.e., a tooth that is heavily relied on for chewing)
  • Allergies our patient might have
  • The preference of the patient regarding the use of metals in the mouth
  • Whether it is necessary cosmetically to have a tooth-colored filling

When visiting Richard J Bianco DMD to get a Composite filling, our experts will adhere local anesthesia in order to numb the area in question (if necessary). Next, Dr. Richard J Bianco, DMD will remove any decay from your tooth using specific dental instruments. Once the decay is removed, Dr. Richard J Bianco, DMD will shape the space to prepare it for the Composite filling, keeping in mind that different types of fillings require different shaping procedures in order to properly stay in place. Dr. Richard J Bianco, DMD will stop several times throughout this process in order to shine a blue light on the resin which will harden the material, making it hard to destroy so you can go back to normal life. Once Dr. Richard J Bianco, DMD has finished placing the filling, he will polish your tooth to utter perfection!

Tooth Extraction


At Richard J Bianco DMD, we always make every attempt possible to treat your teeth and prevent or remedy any dental disease. Unfortunately, in some cases, our Monterey patients come into our office with teeth that are damaged so much that it may be necessary to extract a tooth in order to maintain dental health.

If a tooth is broken, cracked or extensively decayed it may be necessary to remove it. Likewise, a tooth that is associated with advanced stages of periodontal disease should be removed, as well as teeth that are poorly positioned or non-functional. Although every patient at Richard J Bianco DMD is different (and treated on an individual basis), we find that most patients will need to go through a tooth extraction if they are suffering from:

  • A tooth that constantly and significantly hurts when you bite, touch, or push it
  • Heat sensitivity
  • Cold sensitivity that lingers most than just a few seconds
  • Swelling around the affected tooth
  • Discoloration of a tooth, regardless if there is pain or not
  • Broken, fractured/cracked teeth

In order for Dr. Richard J Bianco, DMD to determine whether your tooth requires extraction, there are some tests to be performed. Simple things such as placing hot or cold substances against and around the tooth, feeling out the surrounding tissues, as well as gently tapping on the tooth. X-rays may also be required in order to get the best idea of the health of your tooth.
