The Different Types of Fillings and How a Filling Dentist Can Help Your Family

Filling DentistAs a filling dentist in Great Neck, we can provide you with tooth-colored dental fillings that blend in or the more traditional silver fillings. However, we would prefer to help you to stay in good oral health. We provide preventative dental care for families throughout the area and recommend that you have your teeth cleaned and examined twice per year. This gives us the opportunity to remove plaque and tartar that has formed on and in between your teeth.

Prevent the infection from spreading before it is too late

Even if one does an excellent job of brushing and flossing throughout the day, there are areas inside the mouth that are hard to reach, and this makes regular professional teeth cleanings important. The more often a patient comes in, the less likely the patient is to develop an infection, cavities, or gum disease. This also means that the patient will be less likely to have a toothache at some point in the future.

However, it is possible that the patient will develop a cavity at some point. When this happens, the patient may feel slight discomfort while eating or biting down. This is a sign that the patient needs to visit our dental office. The sooner the patient does so, the faster the treatment will be. After all, both tooth decay and infections can spread. Catching and treating the infection early means the patient will experience less discomfort and the dental appointment will go faster.

In the event you develop a cavity, we will need to remove the decayed portion of the tooth. However, once we remove the decay, the tooth structure will not be complete. This is why we need to place a filling to restore the missing tooth structure. As a filling dentist, we can do so quickly and seamlessly. Our goal is to provide a dental filling that looks natural and blends in with the surrounding teeth. We are experts at doing so and are confident that when we finish, no one will be able to tell there was a cavity in the first place.

Find out how you can improve your dental health with a dental filling from our dental office where we are your family dentist.

There are several reasons it is important to visit a dentist who places fillings on a regular basis. One is that the patient will want the filling to look natural and blend in. Otherwise, it may be noticeable when the patient speaks or smiles. Second, the patient will want a filling that is comfortable. Keep in mind that the structure of a tooth, particularly the chewing surface of a tooth, has a very exact shape. Each ridge is an exact fit with the teeth around and above it.

If one does not restore the ridges of a tooth correctly, then the patient can experience discomfort when eating or bite down. As a filling dentist, we take our time to ensure the restoration is the exact shape and size it needs to be. We pay attention to the details so your bite feels natural, and you do not need to make any unnecessary adjustments to how you chew.
