One of the first symptoms of a dental cavity is pain, which prompts you to see a dentist for treatment. The sooner a cavity is treated, the sooner you can get pain relief. Cavities also risk your oral health, making it essential to have them filled as quickly as possible. At Distinctive Dentistry in Eugene, Oregon, we treat cavities discreetly with composite tooth-colored fillings. Composite restorations will ease your pain, restore tooth health, and retain your smile’s esthetic appeal.
The primary purpose of dental fillings is to stop cavities from progressing and preserve your teeth. An untreated cavity will not go away on its own. It will continue to grow, causing structural damage to your tooth. Once a cavity is discovered, Drs. Robert Gemmell and Ty Jaros will quickly work to remove any decay or infection and have it filled. Eliminating the infection is the first step toward restoring your tooth’s health and integrity. It also prevents cavities from spreading and infecting healthy teeth. Once the decay has been removed, we’ll fill it with a composite resin filling to protect it from future cavities.
Using white filling material for cavities has its advantages. Composite restorations are a mix of finely-ground ceramic/acrylic tooth-colored resin material that doesn’t stand out when applied to your teeth. This makes your filling invisible or hardly noticeable when you smile. The color of your filling can be matched to the shade of your teeth so that it blends seamlessly with your smile to preserve its attractive appearance. With composite fillings, you also get:
Although many people choose composite fillings for their esthetic appeal, composite restorations offer much more in restoring, preserving, and protecting your teeth. Cavities can weaken your teeth, making them more susceptible to chipping, cracking, or crumbling. Composite fillings not only stop cavities but also strengthen the structural integrity of your teeth to restore their usefulness. With proper care, composite fillings can last for many years without needing replacement or repair.
Composite fillings bond directly onto your tooth, making them less likely to come loose over time. They also form a tight, secure seal against cavities to protect your teeth from future infection. Composite filling treatment allows you to enjoy an attractive, healthy smile for years to come.
