Dental fillings are an essential part of general dentistry. They are used to fill in cavities and gaps in teeth, and to repair damaged teeth. Garfield Dental Group offers high-quality dental fillings made from the best materials available. We offer a variety of dental filling options to meet your needs and budget.
Tooth fillings are needed when tooth decay has reached the tooth pulp. The tooth pulp is the center of the tooth that contains the blood vessels and nerves. When tooth decay reaches the tooth pulp, it can cause pain, sensitivity, and infection. Dental fillings are used to fill the cavity and protect the tooth from further decay. At our office, we offer tooth-colored fillings as an alternative to traditional metal fillings. Tooth-colored fillings are made from a composite resin material that can be matched to the color of your natural teeth. This makes them less noticeable than metal fillings and gives you a more natural-looking smile. In addition, tooth-colored fillings bond more securely to your tooth, which helps to strengthen the tooth and prevent future decay.
Signs You May Need a Dental Filling
If you have tooth decay, it is important to get it treated early. Otherwise, the decay can spread and lead to more serious problems. Here are some signs that you may need a tooth filling:
– You have tooth pain when you bite down.
– You have teeth sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures.
– You have visible holes in your teeth.
– You have tooth decay that is visible on x-rays.
