Fix Your Cavities With Tooth-Colored Fillings
I think we've got a lot of patients, actually, here in the practice, people who come in that are new to the practice who have had fillings in the past and they're not tooth-colored. Amalgam fillings, silver fillings, more popular I think several years ago. While it's still offered, I know it's still a legitimate option, here at our office, we find that patients want tooth-colored fillings. The way that the techniques we use, and the materials we use to do fillings, allow patients to not only have their tooth restored to be healthy again, but also even improve the appearance of the tooth, so that when you come in, if you do have any cavities, you can get them replaced and we can make it look like you've never had a cavity. If you come in with a silver filling, and you want it replaced, we can make it look like nothing was ever done to that tooth. It can be as natural as your original tooth.
We’ll get your tooth filled with a discreet filling, and you’ll have your favorite foods and drinks back in rotation in no time! To see us for an exam, call 832-791-1706.
Appearance Matters for Fillings
If you’re older, you might remember when fillings were silver or gold. Today, our Spring, TX dental office offers composite fillings that are color-matched to your teeth. We use only composite fillings made from a mixture of materials that bond to your teeth and actually help increase the durability of your tooth following treatment for dental decay.
Fillings Fix Your Dental Damage
Dr. Memmott will free your tooth of decay and fill in the space left behind, so your tooth will no longer cause you pain or more damage. Once you’ve received your filling, you can continue to care for your tooth like normal with regular professional dental cleanings, twice-daily brushing, and daily flossing.
Why Do I Need a Filling?
The same material we use for tooth-colored fillings — sturdy composite resin — is also used for dental bonding. A few reasons you might need bonding to fix your teeth are:
- A cavity
- A crack
- A chip
Dr. Memmott may even recommend composite resin for an unusual amount of wear and tear from using your teeth, such as to repair damage from grinding your teeth in your sleep.
Rid your tooth of decay before it becomes a serious problem that requires more invasive treatment. Call us at 832-791-1706 or use our convenient online form to schedule your appointment in our Spring, TX dentist office.
