Dental fillings are the most basic restorative service you can get. Even so, this is an important tool in our toolbox to keep you happy and healthy.
Odds are you will need a tooth filling at one time or another. When you do, we welcome you to come to Dossett Dental to repair your tooth. Here are three reasons you should.
1. You Have Tooth Decay
More than 90 percent of people develop cavities. A tooth filling doesn’t just fill a hole. It provides protection against further decay.
2. Your Old Filling is Worn Out
Fillings don’t last forever. Over time, they can chip, crack, and even fall out. By coming in for routine checkups, we can keep an eye on your filling and let you know when a new one is needed.
3. You Have a Metal Filling
This is more of a cosmetic benefit of our new fillings. Using a composite resin, your filling can be made to match the color of your teeth instead of sticking out because it is made of metal.
