How does a filling fix a cavity?
Our Spring, TX dentist 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 tooth fillings, you can continue to care for your tooth like normal with regular professional dental cleanings, twice-daily brushing, and daily flossing.
Does a filling mean metal in my mouth?
If you’re older, you might remember when tooth fillings were silver or gold. Today, we offer composite fillings that are color-matched to your teeth. Composite fillings are made from a mixture of materials that bond to your teeth and actually help increase the durability of your tooth following treatment for decay.
What are some other reasons I might need a filling?
The same material we use for fillings — 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
Your doctor may even recommend composite resin for an unusual amount of wear and tear from using your teeth to rip things open, or to repair damage from grinding your teeth in your sleep.
