Hillsboro, TX Dental Fillings
Restorative Dental Services
Dental fillings are a useful solution that can repair and restore teeth that have been damaged by tooth decay. Once the decay is removed and the hole (cavity) filled, your restored tooth will look and feel just like a natural tooth, especially because our porcelain and composite resin fillings are shade-matched to surrounding teeth. These durable fillings often last up to 15 years, and they are not painfully obvious dentistry because they are tooth-colored rather than amalgam (metal) materials.
Do I Need a Filling?
Cavities are the main reason people need dental fillings, but other habits like grinding teeth, biting nails, or chewing ice can also cause serious trouble. The first sign something is wrong, like a toothache, is an indication you may have tooth decay and should seek dental attention urgently. Fillings are a good option in the realm or restorative dentistry, because they halt the progression of tooth decay, because even small cavities can progress to a much more serious problem that could mean you’ll lose your natural teeth. We seek to prevent that from happening through ongoing dental exams and checkups.
What Other Options Do I Have if I Can’t Get a Filling?
You may not be a good candidate for a dental filling if you have more severe, advanced tooth decay. These patients are often better suited for root canals or dental implants which are then followed up with the placement of a dental crown. We will present you with all of your treatment options and educate you on your oral health issues so you can make the best decision for yourself that falls in line with your goals and budget.
