Compelling Reasons to Choose A Dental Filling

June 3, 2015

Are you suffering from tooth decay? If so, that little hole in your tooth may turn into a big hole if you neglect it and avoid scheduling a dental filling to repair your tooth. Though you may initially not even recognize that you have a cavity, this does not mean agreeing to treatment is unnecessary. If anything, the sooner you agree to a filling, the greater your ability to avoid complications down the line. Ready to discover some truly compelling reasons to say, “yes” to this restorative treatment? Read further:

Regain Comfort and Function

Tooth decay is just what it sounds like – the tissue within your tooth is breaking down. If you ignore this problem, it will worsen and progress, which will eventually result in great discomfort. As a result of your pain or soreness, you will then find that daily function becomes challenging. Everything from comfortably brushing your teeth to eating meals or drinking beverages will become uncomfortable. By choosing a dental filling, you can say goodbye to this type of sensitivity and hello to regained comfort and function.

Protect Your Tooth

Your cavity is not an isolated incident that cannot develop into other problems. For instance, if you allow your cavity to grow, your remaining tooth tissue may become quite thin and brittle, potentially resulting in a broken tooth. Or, you may find that your severe decay can give way to an infection. Infected teeth require complex treatment, usually including root canal therapy and the need for a dental crown. Rather than putting yourself through additional stress, we encourage you to choose a filling right away.

Enjoy The Benefits of Tooth-Colored Fillings

Worried that your filling will mar your tooth and your entire smile? Don’t worry – we offer tooth-colored dental fillings. This means that the filling you receive will not be made out of metal but out of a synthetic resin material called composite. We will match it to the shade of your tooth for a beautiful, natural-looking finish.
