Dental Fillings

It’s almost certain everyone will have to deal with the most basic of dental maladies—cavities. If left un-addressed, cavities can cause much more widespread tooth decay and oral pain. Fortunately since they are such a common issue, dental technology and procedure is quite advanced in dealing with these unwanted enamel intrusions. One such technique is dental fillings.

How We Help You

Here at Gilbert Road Dental Care, if you ever find yourself in a situation where a filling is necessary, it’s best to weigh your budget and maintenance needs with the following pros and cons:

  • Cost–Some filling materials are far more expensive and upfront procedure costs may be higher.
  • Aesthetics–Certain fillings blend in with enamel much more easily and on casual observation, it may appear that the tooth is perfectly normal. Other materials make it quite obvious that the tooth has been treated.
  • Durability–Filling materials that either cost less or blend in with the tooth may not be as durable as other options. Do you want a good-looking filling that lasts just around five years, or a more obvious filling that lasts ten or more? It’s up to you!

We Can Help You!

Fillings can cause side-effects such as tooth sensitivity and may require re-treatment or reapplication in following years. However, when faced with preventing further tooth decay, they are an undeniably proven solution.
