Minimally Invasive Composite Fillings
When it comes to tooth decay – prompt, quality dental intervention is important to avoid more extensive and costly treatments down the road. If you have a cavity, you might be experiencing symptoms like…
- Sensitivity to hot, cold or sweet foods and beverages
- Pain when biting or chewing
- Persistent tooth discomfort
- Food packing between your teeth
To preserve as much of your natural tooth as possible, it’s important that cavities be treated early, when they’re much smaller.
Fillings That Blend In With Your Smile
When a cavity is discovered, it is gently removed and then replaced with a filling material to restore the natural function of your tooth and to protect it from future decay. The dentists at Union Square Dental recommend white, composite fillings for quality, beautiful dental restorations because:
They’re aesthetically pleasing when compared to traditional metal, amalgam fillings. When you smile, you want people to admire your joy – not be distracted by your silver fillings. White fillings are color-matched to your natural teeth to create an invisible restoration that blends into your smile. We can even change out your older silver fillings with cosmetic white ones as part of your comprehensive smile makeover.
They’re less invasive than silver fillings. When an amalgam restoration is used, a much larger area has to be removed from your tooth in order to properly place the filling. Tooth-colored composite fillings bond to your tooth, requiring a minimal amount of tooth to be removed, thereby preserving more of your natural, healthy tooth structure.
If you suspect that you might have a cavity, it’s important that you give our Union Square office a call right away. Treating your tooth sooner rather than later can help you avoid the need for an implant, crown, or even a root canal.
