To Our Valued Patients at Surprise Smiles,

Welcome! We are open, looking forward to seeing returning patients, accepting new patients, and operating under normal business hours! The Arizona Department of Health Services (AZDS) is still not recommending any type of closures or modification in hours. We will continue to monitor information coming from both the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and AZDHS and keep you apprised of any changes or updates. We will stay on top of this information and bring it to you as soon as possible through our website, email, and social media.

As we continue to navigate through the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, our dentists and dental team want to assure you that we are continuing to do our best to make sure it a priority that we are following the latest health and safety guidelines from the CDC, specifically as they relate to the dental industry. We value keeping our patients and staff members safe and comfortable.

As part of our daily standard health and safety protocols, our office follows ‘Universal Precautions’ in order to protect our patients and our staff. These are precautions we have always taken, and are not new. By taking ‘universal precautions’ means we always assume that anyone could potentially be carrying a contagious and dangerous disease. We therefore follow strict guidelines to prevent the transmission of any potential disease, be it COVID-19 (Coronavirus), hepatitis, tuberculosis, HIV, or any other disease. This has been a standard of care we follow, per the CDC, in regard to blood borne pathogens.

These measures include:
•  strict hand washing protocols
•  use of (single use) disposable protective equipment and barriers
•  thorough disinfection of exposed or potentially exposed surfaces after every patient visit
•  disinfection and high-heat steam sterilization of instruments and routine monitoring of sterilization verification
•  continued education on infection control

•  disinfecting common surface areas every 30 minutes
•  providing hand sanitizer in common areas
•  screening everyone who enters our offices based on CDC recommendations
•  offering preprocedural mouth rinse

As state and national health and safety regulations change and evolve during these times, Surprise Smiles is dedicated to monitoring and evaluating our dental practice and office space for any potential risks as we serve our patients and community. We strive to maintain an approach to our dentistry services that is both safe and beneficial to everyone we serve.

We strive to provide a safe, healthy, comfortable, and relaxed environment for everyone that comes into our dental office. We follow the American Dental Association’s Update to Office Procedures During COVID-19 in regard to safe office procedures, workplace hazards, and making decisions for best office practices. We stay informed on recent information given to dentists in this regard, as well as keeping up to date with any changes recommended by the CDC.

Please let us know if you have any questions in regard to our health and safety protocols here at Surprise Smiles. We recognize that it can be challenging during these unprecedented times of COVID-19. We all want to get back to our normal lives, and we will be able to do so, in a safe, wise, and healthy manner. We will be happy to answer any questions that you may have in regard to our dental practice health and safety protocols, cleaning, and disinfecting procedures we follow.

Thank you for continuing to be a valued patient here at Bradshaw Family Dental. We look forward to continuing to serve you and your dental needs through the various services we provide for you, from preventive dentistry, restorative dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, pediatric dentistry, sedation dentistry, dental implants and more!

Dental Filling
Prescott Valley, AZ

Before and after photo of dental fillings - Dentist Prescott Valley, AZEvery once in a while it’s easy to forget to brush and floss. It happens to all of us – a busy day followed by a busy evening leads to falling asleep on the couch. Before you know it you are late for work and forgot to brush twice! When we miss brushing and flossing a few times a week it’s not too big of a deal. When we forget often and for a long enough periods of time it can really add up and start to take a toll on your oral health. If enough bad bacteria are allowed to congregate on your teeth they can form a cavity. Fillings are what we use to restore areas of your teeth that are affected by cavities.

Reasons for Fillings

Generally there are two reasons to have fillings placed. If you have a small or medium sized cavity that needs to be cleaned out and filled – or if you need front teeth repaired due to chipping or cracking.

The Process of Receiving a Filling

As with any dental procedure at our office, having a filling placed starts by ensuring your comfort and numbing the area around the teeth that we will work on. Once you are comfortable and numb we can begin the process of removing the decayed portions of your teeth. When the decay has been removed entirely we will fill in the tooth with the filling material of your choice.

Composite Fillings

Composite is the most popular filling material on the market today. We specially formulate composite filling mixtures to match the exact color of your teeth to ensure a nearly unnoticeable filling. We also use this material for dental bonding procedures to cover up chips and cracks in the front teeth. Composite material is made of a mix of plastic, glass, and a sticky resin that hardens permanently under a special UV light. These fillings are able to last past ten years.

Amalgam Fillings

Amalgam fillings are what most people picture when they think of dental fillings. They are usually only found in the molars and are silver or metallic in coloration. They are made up of an amalgamation of metals, including tin, silver, and copper. In order to be viable fillings a significant portion of the tooth must be drilled so that the amalgam can gain goo purchase on the tooth. For this reason, amalgam fillings are starting to be phased out in favor of composite and even gold fillings.

Gold Fillings

Gold is a fantastic restoration material because it shares so much in common with natural teeth. Gold feels just like a natural tooth and is able to last extremely long periods of time. Many people enjoy the beautiful aesthetic that gold provides as well. Gold can take a bit longer to craft and be placed on a tooth, but many professionals and patients swear that they make the very best dental restorations.
