05 Aug Cracked Fillings – Tower Dental Group
Do you have old cracked fillings? If you do it is very important to replace them. If cracked fillings are not fixed they could lead to pain, a root canal, a crown and possibly even an extraction. Tower Dental Group offers a quick and affordable fix.
Cracked fillings are the result of age and wear. After years of eating and drinking, fillings may crack. The filling’s age is positively correlated with its propensity to crack. Once a filling begins to crack it will soon fall out. It is important to keep your teeth protected.
Fillings are used to fill small cavities. When a filling falls out, the hole is no longer protected. Small food pieces will find their way to the hole. This food is hard to clean, leading to tooth decay. The tooth can get an infection and be very painful. At this point, you will probably need a root canal. If you wait too long, you may even need an extraction. Thankfully, Tower Dental provides fast and affordable emergency dentistry. We use simple modern techniques to fix your cracked fillings.
Tower Dental can affordably replace your cracked fillings with new white fillings. White fillings are a popular alternative to the old metal ones. They are durable and look just like a natural tooth. White fillings are also called composite fillings. That is because they are made from composite resin. Composite resin is an adhesive restorative material. Not only will a white filling fix your dental health, but it will also improve your smile’s appearance.
Replacing your cracked fillings with white ones is a simple procedure. We first use a local anesthetic to numb your mouth. Then we will clean your tooth, making sure we remove all decay. We use a gel to adhere the filling. Then a blue light is applied, hardening the filling. The procedure is quick and pain-free. Most patients don’t experience any discomfort.
