Why Opt for Dental Fillings?
Dental fillings are a common and essential restorative procedure. At Rosemont Dental Center, we use fillings to repair teeth affected by decay, fractures, or wear, ensuring the longevity and health of your smile.
What Causes the Need for a Dental Filling?
Several factors can lead to the need for a dental filling:
- Tooth decay due to plaque and tartar buildup.
- Chipped or broken teeth.
- Teeth worn down from nail-biting, grinding, or misuse. Regular dental cleanings and check-ups can help in early detection and prevention of such issues.
What Materials Are Used for Dental Fillings?
We offer a variety of filling materials tailored to your specific needs and preferences, including:
- Composite resins for a natural tooth-colored appearance.
- Amalgam, known for its durability and strength.
- Gold or porcelain fillings for a blend of aesthetics and resilience. Our team will guide you in choosing the best material based on the tooth's location, the extent of repair, and cost considerations.
The Dental Filling Procedure at Rosemont Dental Center
The procedure involves removing the decayed tooth material, cleaning the affected area, and then filling the cleaned-out cavity with the chosen filling material. It's a straightforward process that not only restores the tooth but also prevents further decay.
