The Right Dental Filling For Your Smile

Notice: Undefined variable: crop in /var/www/html/hosting-wp6/wp-content/themes/swmparent2016/inc/custom-functions.php on line 17 Tooth-Colored Fillings 3 at Douglas A. Callow, DDS Office in Plymouth, MI

Make a list of 20 people. It can be anyone — your family and friends, co-workers, celebrities, anyone at all.

Now, pick one name on that list. Statistically, close to 19 out of 20 people will develop at least one cavity during their lives.

Maybe you will be that 1 person in 20 who remains cavity-free throughout your life. Odds are, you’ll be one of the 19, however. With that in mind, we want to talk to you today about dental fillings.

To get one for yourself or someone in your family, call 734-404-7336 to visit the office of Douglas A. Callow, DDS, in Plymouth, MI.

What Fillings Are For

For a long time, fillings had a purely practical purpose. If you got a cavity, it could be painful to bite and chew. As a result, you might not be able to eat certain foods. You also might notice increased sensitivity to hot or cold drinks.

No one wants to live in pain, and no one wants to give up their favorite treats or their morning coffee. By getting a filling, you can keep enjoying those things and many more.

Fillings have always served two primary purposes. First, they protected your teeth against further decay. Second, they restored the function of your teeth so you can eat and drink comfortably.

That also may be why people used metal fillings for a long time to fix decayed teeth. Gold and amalgam (which is a mix of mercury and other metals) fillings are effective ways to restore the function of your teeth.

But this leaves you with a different issue. The dark spots that are a common clue that you have a cavity may not look much better when you have a distracting metal filling in your mouth. Fortunately, we have a solution for this at our Plymouth, MI office.

Restore Your Smile, Too

With the advances in modern dentistry, you not can protect your tooth, restore its function, and enjoy your natural smile again. By getting a composite filling, you can look and feel like yourself again.

Using a type of resin, we can fill the cavity in your tooth. Then the resin can be shaded, hardened, and polished so that it blends in with your natural smile. This allows you to enjoy the benefits of metal fillings with a cosmetic twist. This way you won’t worry about other people knowing that you had a cavity.

If you already have a metal filling, you also should know that we can replace your old filling with a composite filling when the time comes. Over time, all fillings wear out. They may become chipped, cracked, or separated from teeth. When this happens, it’s time to get a new one.

Keep Your Smile

Having a cavity isn’t fun, but getting a tooth-colored dental filling can bring back your natural smile.  Call Douglas A. Callow, DDS today at 734-404-7336 or fill out our online form to request an appointment.
