Crowley Dental Fillings
Do Your Teeth Have Cavities?
When you develop cavities in your teeth, it is important that you visit a Crowley dentist sooner than later to have them filled. Where previously all fillings were done with amalgam, there are now more choices of filling materials. At Stone Oak Family Dental, we offer a variety of dental restoratives which may include composite and porcelain. These dental materials are stronger, more durable, and safer than metal fillings, so you can rest assured that they will last.
Choosing the Right Type of Fillings
Whether you yourself are in need of fillings or your child is the one with a cavity that needs to be filled, there are several factors to consider. If a tooth has a cavity in it, it needs to be treated before the decay spreads and leads to more damage to the tooth or nerve. When you come in for your examination, we can determine what type of fillings is right for you.
A few factors to consider include:
- The location of the tooth and how much chewing it will have to do
- What type of components will be used in the filling material
- How much of the tooth remains (if it has been damaged)
- Where the filling will be placed
Natural Looking Dental Fillings in Crowley
Many of our patients are concerned about the appearance of fillings, especially when it comes to gold or amalgam material. Fortunately, if you choose composite or porcelain, it is made to mimic the look of your natural teeth. In fact, it is likely that nobody would ever notice you or your child ever had a filling.
In our family owned office, our Crowley dentists are dedicated to providing caring and gentle dental work. If you would like to make an appointment for you or your child to get fillings, call us now at (817) 631-2388.
