Metal fillings have always been the first choice in filling cavities because the amalgam material is durable, long-lasting and cost-effective. However, now, a more aesthetically conscious public means that white fillings are just as popular, if not more popular. They offer the same protection as silver fillings, but with the addition of blending the tooth in with the natural teeth, hiding the work that has been done, and maintaining the beauty of the smile.
Early treatment is key because if the cavity is allowed to progress you may find that you end up needing root canal treatment, or you may even develop a painful dental abscess. Further development of the cavity is likely to cause more pain and a need for more detailed treatment that costs more money and time.
If the decay is relatively mild we can remove it and provide you with a white filling. However, if the middle of the tooth is infected in some way we may need to do root canal treatment. This is where we need to remove the infected tissue from the middle of the tooth, clean the area and then replace it with special clinical cement.
It may be that white filling material is used to form part of the reconstruction of the tooth but in some instances a crown is more suitable.
Regular check-ups with your Essex dentist, along with good daily oral hygiene and support from Perfect Smile Spa dental hygienist services, can help to prevent plaque build-up and the formation of tartar. Common signs and symptoms you might have a cavity are:
