Checkups are essential in ensuring that you catch tooth decay early. During checkups, we can use low-radiation x-rays to show you the areas of concern for cavities and tooth decay. You see exactly what we see, and we can discuss the possible options to determine what type of filling or restoration is preferred in that specific situation.
If we do find a cavity, it is essential to get the fillings in to effectively restore your tooth and help them keep their strength and structure. We find that white fillings are best because they look natural and can be colored and whitened with your teeth. They are also combined with a bonding material that helps them stay in place better and allows them to be much stronger than silver or gold fillings.
If you currently have other kinds of fillings that you find are becoming discolored or are unattractive to the overall look of your teeth, we can also go in and replace the fillings with the newer, whiter fillings for you as well.
If you are concerned about a certain tooth developing a cavity, make a phone call to Eastland Dental Center today to find out what Dr. Milligan and his staff can do for you. When caught early and often, fillings are a great way to keep cavities from spreading and causing more damage to your teeth, your oral health, and to your overall health as well.
