Did you know that a whopping 26% of adults have untreated tooth decay? According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, cavities come second only to the common cold when it comes to common health problems facing Americans. Fortunately, metal restorations are no longer the go-to restorative dentistry solution. Instead, you can opt for tooth-colored fillings, which flawlessly restore the look and function of damaged teeth without calling attention to your treatment. Get in touch with our team today to schedule your appointment!
Without a trained eye and the right tools, the early signs of a cavity can fly under the radar. However, there are a few signs you should be aware of when it comes to spotting decay:
If you begin to experience any of the above symptoms, then make sure to schedule an appointment right away. Putting off your visit can result in further damage, requiring more extensive treatment.
Tooth-colored fillings have become the go-to restorative solution for dentists and patients alike because they come with a number of benefits, including:
When a cavity is detected early enough to be addressed with a simple filling, our dentist in Denton will begin the process by numbing your mouth thoroughly. From there, they will remove the infected portions of your tooth, ensuring it is completely clean of bacteria in the process. Next, they will sculpt the appropriate shade of composite resin into a natural-looking shape before hardening it with a curing light. We will check to ensure that your bite feels comfortable, and the process will be complete!
The cost depends on a number of factors, from how many teeth need to be treated to the fine print on your dental plan. Don’t worry – we will never perform a treatment before discussing the financial component of your care. After creating a custom treatment plan, we will share the price with you upfront. If you have benefits you’d like us to maximize, don’t hesitate to let us know! If you don’t have dental insurance, we have other options available to ensure you can get the quality dental care you need at a price you can afford.
