Fillings Restore Teeth When Decay Is An Issue
At Watertown Dental Care in Watertown, we know that cavities happen. However, by brushing, flossing, and seeing your dentist in Watertown at least twice each year, you can dramatically reduce your odds of developing them.
How do I know if I have a cavity?
At first, you may not have any symptoms at all. Over time, however, there are often noticeable signs, including:
- Surface stains
- Minor to severe pain when eating or drinking anything cold, sweet, or hot
- Tooth sensitivity
- Sudden or recurring pain.
What are tooth-colored fillings and what benefits do they offer?
Using materials that match the natural color of your teeth, these fillings bond easily to your tooth structure and support it. They often require that less of your natural tooth be removed when compared to traditional amalgam fillings, and are known to boost the smiling and speaking confidence of patients who receive them.
How do you care for tooth-colored fillings?
Teeth that have received this type of fillings require the same cleaning and care as untreated teeth. Daily dental hygiene and bi-annual dental examinations and cleanings are key. Making healthy nutritional and physical choices – such as eating a nutrient-rich diet, avoiding or quitting smoking, and limiting your consumption of sugary foods and drinks – are also vital to good oral health.
