Dr. Jason Ford:
Tooth fillings help fill in what bacteria has ate away in the teeth. What we do here, we do tooth-colored fillings so that people really can't tell that they're there. For a long time, fillings were done with metal, so we're doing with composite materials, and we can match the shade perfectly to each patient. It just helps restore teeth to proper function.
You’ve got the tell-tale dark spot on your tooth that indicates you have a cavity. You don’t like the look of tooth decay, but you aren’t so sure that a metal filling would look any better. That’s why you should come to our Edgewood, KY dental office for a tooth filling that’s discreet instead.
By getting this kind of filling, you can:
- End your tooth sensitivity
- Prevent a painful tooth infection
- Restore the natural look of your smile
Don’t leave your teeth at risk. Schedule an appointment at Edgewood Dental Care today. Call 859-474-7830 to get your filling.
Protect Your Teeth for Years to Come
By getting a tooth-colored filling, you are stopping decay from spreading and reducing the risk of more damage. You also are restoring the function of your tooth, so you can bite and chew without pain or sensitivity. By using composite resin, your filling will be metal-free and mercury-free. Plus, it will look like part of your smile instead of becoming a distraction.
When you get your filling at Edgewood Dental Care, we can complete the procedure painlessly. Using The Wand, we will gently give you a local anesthetic to numb your tooth. We also have sedation dentistry if you prefer something stronger.
Understand the Potential Problem
Tooth decay is a never-ending problem that affects almost everyone. Based on national statistics, 92 percent of Americans will have at least one cavity, and among adults 64 years or younger, roughly 1 in 4 has an untreated cavity. In other words, if you haven’t had a cavity yet, there’s a chance that you will. And if you already have a filling, it will need to be replaced someday.
When you have tooth decay, taking take of it quickly can save you a lot of aches and pains in the long run. The bacteria that cause cavities will continue eating away at your tooth if you let them. This can lead to a painful tooth infection, which may require root canal treatment and a dental crown to fix. Don’t wait. You can save time, money, and your smile by getting a filling now.
To fix a cavity or replace an old, worn-out metal filling, let our experts at Edgewood Dental Care handle it. Call today at 859-474-7830 to schedule your appointment for tooth fillings in Edgewood, KY.
