Dear valued patients,

At Martin-Taylor Dentistry our #1 priority is your health and safety. Currently, we are available to treat your emergency dental needs. One of the important reasons we are doing so is to reduce the burden that dental emergencies would place on hospital emergency departments, if we were not available. We want to assure you that our office at Martin-Taylor Dentistry is a safe, clean environment to get the necessary treatment. We not only meet all requirements, but we exceed them, for your safety and ours. Delaying treatment of infection or pain can lead to more serious issues that may become more complicated to treat and can compromise your overall health, not just the health of your mouth.

At our office, we are thoroughly screening all calls and patients to maintain a safe environment. Patients are easily able to maintain social distancing. All rooms are wiped down before and after treating patients and the Dentist and the Martin-Taylor Dentistry Team always wear proper gear for their protection and yours.

We take extraordinary measures to ensure the safety and well-being of all our patients. We adhere to strict medical hygiene policy, including thoroughly disinfecting all common areas and surfaces (bathrooms, lobby and chairs, counters, door handles, etc…).

Our office is clean, safe, and ready to treat any dental emergencies you have during these times and after. Do not hesitate to call us with questions or concerns: (520) 747-9024

Sincerely,
Jeff Martin DDS
William Taylor DDS

Healthy teeth

Silver amalgam fillings were the mainstay in dentistry for many years, and while they provided a functional way to repair teeth with cavities, most people would agree that they didn’t look very good. At Martin Taylor Dentistry, patients in the Tucson, AZ area can get the best of both worlds with white tooth fillings. These composite resin fillings effectively restore a tooth’s function and health, while at the same time achieving cosmetically pleasing results.

Benefits of white cavity fillings

The composite resin material used in white fillings looks just like your teeth, mimicking both the color and the translucency that natural teeth have. Tooth-colored fillings do more than just look great and blend in seamlessly with your smile, which means that they are not only a great choice for your front teeth, but also your back molars that people will rarely see. The composite restoration material helps to reinforce the tooth by bonding to the tooth’s surface, which means that your dentist needs to remove less of the healthy tooth structure than if a metal amalgam filling were to be used. In addition, for patients who are concerned about the potential toxicities associated with mercury in the amalgam material, white fillings offer a great metal-free alternative.

The tooth-colored filling process

If you are told that you need a filling, there is no need to panic. Fillings are the most common restorative dental procedure done in the United States, with millions of patients receiving fillings each year.

  • First, we numb the area that will be treated so you are completely comfortable during the procedure
  • Then, we remove the decayed area from the tooth using specialized dental tools
  • Once the tooth is ready, we place the composite resin material in layer by layer, using a blue light to cure each layer for a hard, durable finish
  • After your tooth has been filled, we check your bite and adjust the shape of the filling as needed to make your smile function and feel great

At Martin Taylor Dentistry, we are here to serve all your preventive and restorative dental care needs. Call our Tucson, AZ office today at (520) 600-6925 to schedule your appointment!

Dr. Taylor, Dr. Martin, and their entire staff are the very best. The front desk staff, the dental assistants, and dental hygienists are excellent. I’ve been to many dentists over the years, and they are the most skilled and professional group of people that I have encountered. You can be confident you will be fully informed about what is recommended for a treatment plan and what it will cost. I’ve had the gamut of dental procedures — crowns, implants, root canals, and more routine care. It’s been made as pleasant and comfortable as possible by their skill, as well as their kindness and understanding. I wholeheartedly recommend Martin and Taylor Dentistry.

I have been a patient of Dr. Taylor’s for most of my adult hood. I have had everything done from a filling to multiple dental implants. All of my procedures have been straightforward with zero complications and as little discomfort as possible. Even after my implants I had minimal pain! Before I saw Dr. Taylor I was terrified of dentists, but he put me at ease with his expertise. The hygienists are kind, thorough but gentle, and knowledgeable. The office staff is very friendly and helpful. The office itself is modern and impeccably clean. I highly recommend Martin Tayler dentistry and won’t trust my teeth to any other dentists.
