Take Care of Your Cavity With a Filling
An untreated cavity can cause you to need more extensive dental care than just a filling. If the cavity is allowed to spread, you may need an inlay, onlay, or dental crown to repair the damage. If decay reaches the soft interior part of your tooth, the damage could require a root canal for the repair. That’s why we recommend you visit us twice a year for a dental cleaning and exam. Routine checkups give us the chance to spot cavities and fix them before they become big problems.
At 19th Street Dental, we offer two types of tooth fillings:
- Composite Resin Fillings – Our dentists place mostly composite resin fillings. The tooth-colored composite is made from tiny particles of glass and plastic and will blend in well with the rest of your smile. Another benefit of composite tooth fillings is that we remove less healthy tooth material to prepare your tooth for the filling.
- Amalgam Fillings – We can also use traditional silver fillings if needed. Amalgam fillings are used in some situations to provide extra strength to the repair. Although both types of fillings should last for several years before needing replacement, amalgam fillings tend to last longer.
If you need Atlanta tooth fillings, you don’t have to look any further than 19th Street Dental. Call us today to schedule your appointment at 678-990-3143.
