Are you experiencing sensitivity to foods that are hot, cold or sweet? Have you noticed discomfort when chewing or biting, or food packing inside of your tooth? Is there noticeable discoloration on your tooth? If so, then you might have a cavity.
Dr. Bruce Fine recommends that any persistent oral discomfort is evaluated in our office, for prompt care and treatment. At Fine Dental Care we restore your natural tooth to a healthy state with customized, aesthetically pleasing composite fillings.
We prefer this type of restoration because:
When you laugh, you want to be noticed for your beautiful smile, not the flashes of silver on your teeth. With composite restorations, you can avoid that distracting metal appearance of amalgam restorations, and confidently share your beautiful, bright smile.
Did you know that silver restorations contain mercury? Over time, trace amounts of mercury can potentially leach into the tissue surrounding your filling. With a cosmetic, composite restoration, you know you’re making the best, mercury-free decision for your smile and your overall health. This can help you avoid the need for dental implants in the future.
When you’re suffering from a cavity, timely treatment is important to minimize further decay and more extensive, and expensive, future procedures. Your visit will begin with ensuring your overall comfort. The damaged portion of your tooth will be removed, and the area will be restored with a beautiful composite filling. Once placed, a special light is used to cure your restoration. Your dentist will verify that your bite is both natural and comfortable and any adjustments that are needed will be made. When your filling is complete, you’ll once again enjoy a healthy, beautiful smile.
