Catching a cavity early on is always a good thing. Especially when you have a tooth showing early stages of tooth decay. One of the best solutions to cavities is to get a dental filling so you can save the tooth before it becomes further decayed (and thus leaving you with no other option but to extract it).
At Westwood Dental Group in Westwood, MA, we know that your oral health is important. And sometimes, we can go about our regular dental care and find a cavity. But if you catch it just in time, we’ll be able to provide you with a filling that will make sure that your tooth is free from any further damage.
Fillings are useful if and when you are looking for a simple restorative method for your tooth. We provide fillings that are made from composite materials. This filling is much different compared to typical fillings made from metals like gold or silver. A composite filling is the closest that you can get to the color of your tooth. Once the filling is applied, it will be as if the cavity never happened in the first place.
Furthermore, composite materials are also safe and non-toxic compared to metal materials. Plus, we believe that your teeth should look good even after a filling. Once your procedure is finished, you will be able to go back to your regular dental hygiene habits, eat healthy, and visit your dentist regularly for checkups.
One of the best things about our fillings other than restoring it to your original look is the process. All it takes is one appointment. During your appointment, the dentist will numb the tooth and then thoroughly clean out any decay that may be present in the area. Once the cavity is cleaned out, the dentist will then place the composite filling, and it will instantly bond with your tooth. Once completed, your dentist will instruct you on any post-procedural action steps that you must follow to ensure that your tooth does not undergo any further damage.
If you have a cavity, the last thing you want to do is delay making an appointment. If you reside in Westwood, MA or the surrounding area, you can schedule an appointment with one of our offices so you can get the filling you want that will give you the closest thing to a restored tooth.
