One of the most common dental problems we treat is tooth decay. But we never let that darken a bright smile! With our Surprise tooth fillings, we can treat cavities without leaving any dark spots in your mouth. We use a composite material that blends seamlessly with the rest of your teeth.
This type of dental filling has several advantages:
Sometimes, a damaged tooth needs more than a standard filling. If a cavity is too large, there won’t be enough healthy enamel left for the filling to bond. We may suggest one of our other dental restorations to save a decayed tooth:
Dental Crown – This restoration is designed using digital impressions gathered from our 3-D scanner, so it will fit perfectly and comfortably over your tooth. Our crowns are durable and beautifully lifelike, so you can continue enjoying the complete function of your mouth.
Inlays/Onlays – These are often referred to as partial crowns. They cover only a portion of a tooth when there’s too much decay for a regular filling but not enough to justify a whole crown.
Treating a cavity with a dark metal filling can leave a dark spot in your smile. Let us keep your mouth healthy without leaving any evidence behind. Call us today at 623-933-5749 to schedule an appointment for tooth fillings in Surprise.
At Great Smiles Dental Care, tooth fillings are placed in the most comfortable way possible. Our team will make sure that the area we’re working on is completely numb before we try to fill any teeth. You shouldn’t feel a thing except for a slight sensation of pressure. Plus, we’ll fully answer any questions you have before we get started.
Although there are several different materials that tooth fillings are sometimes made from – including amalgam, porcelain, and even gold – we only use natural-colored composite resin for our fillings. They are metal-free and will blend in beautifully with the rest of your teeth. You won’t worry that others will see an unattractive metal filling when you talk, eat, or yawn.
After Dr. Wendelschafer places your new filling, you should expect it to last for several years without any problems. On average, composite fillings should last for about five to seven years, although other factors do come into play. Depending on which tooth has the filling and the types of foods you eat, your filling may last a longer or shorter period of time.
