Why Should I Get Dental Fillings?

Dental fillings are essential for maintaining oral health as they not only stop tooth decay but also restore function, enhance aesthetics, prevent tooth loss, and protect neighboring teeth. They halt decay by removing damaged parts and sealing the tooth. This alleviates discomfort or sensitivity, allowing you to eat and drink comfortably, while having the added bonus of maintaining a natural-looking smile. Additionally, fillings can help to prevent cavities from spreading to neighboring teeth, safeguarding your overall dental health.

The Benefits of Dental Fillings

Halt Decay Progression

Dental fillings effectively stop the progression of tooth decay. By removing the decayed portion of the tooth and sealing it with a filling, you prevent further damage and maintain the overall health of the tooth.

Restore Tooth Function

Cavities can make eating and drinking uncomfortable due to sensitivity or pain. Dental fillings eliminate this discomfort, allowing you to bite and chew with ease, ensuring you can enjoy your favorite foods without limitations.

Aesthetic Enhancement

Modern dental fillings are designed to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth. This means that not only do they restore your oral health, but they also maintain the aesthetic appearance of your smile. You can smile confidently, knowing that your dental work is virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth.

The Dental Fillings Treatment Process

Diagnosis and Evaluation

The journey to healthier teeth begins with a comprehensive dental examination. Dr. Nathan Ewoldt will assess your oral health, identify any cavities, and determine if dental fillings are the appropriate treatment. This initial step ensures that you receive personalized care tailored to your unique needs.

Removal of Decay and Tooth Preparation

If cavities are detected, the next step involves removing the decayed portion of the tooth. This process ensures that all the compromised tissue is eliminated, leaving behind a clean surface ready for the filling.

Filling Placement

Once the tooth is prepared, the filling material is placed to restore the tooth's shape and function. Dental fillings come in various materials, such as composite resin, amalgam, or porcelain, and can be customized to match the color of your natural teeth. This step ensures that the tooth is both functional and aesthetically pleasing.

With the filling in place, your tooth is now repaired and protected from further decay. You can go about your daily life with confidence, knowing that your oral health is preserved.
