Why Do You Need Fillings?

Cavities and tooth decay are among the world's most common health problems. Some people are more prone to cavities than others; however, nearly 90% of adults will have a cavity at one point or another. If cavities aren't treated, they get larger and affect deeper layers of your teeth. They can lead to a severe toothache, infection and tooth loss.

Common signals you may need a filling for a cavity include:

  • Pain when chewing

  • Tooth sensitivity

  • Toothache, spontaneous pain or pain that occurs without any apparent cause

  • Experiencing mild to sharp pain when eating or drinking something hot or cold

  • Visible holes or pits in your teeth

  • Pain when you bite down

  • Brown, black or white staining on any surface of a tooth

However, many cavities show no symptoms at all and your dental checkup and examination is the only way for your dentist to detect tooth decay.

When tooth decay is caught in its early stages, having a minimally invasive dental filling is all that is needed to restore your tooth and your smile. As a premier provider of fillings we are proud to offer modern, health-focused cavity repairs to our patients.

What Are Tooth-Colored
Composite Fillings?

At Skyline Dental Designs our composite tooth-colored fillings can repair teeth with decay, chips, cracks, cavities, and gaps. They have been in use since the 1960s and are now more popular than amalgam fillings as they are viewed as a faster, easier and safer alternative.

Amalgam fillings can contain mercury, which may be harmful to certain groups of people. The use of composite fillings eliminates mercury-related health concerns. Amalgam fillings may also expand and contract with temperature exposure, resulting in tooth fractures. Composite fillings require less of the tooth structure to be removed and are also less noticeable than amalgam fillings.

Composite tooth-colored fillings are fabricated from a mixture of resin and powdered glass and are frequently used for cosmetic enhancements due to the fact they can blend in well with neighboring teeth and give a natural appearance. Composite fillings can also directly bond to your tooth structure and strengthen your teeth when they are fitted. They do not cause irritability or sensitivity to the surrounding gums, require less drilling, are easily placed, and take only a few seconds to harden. Your visit to the dentist for a composite filling will be easy and convenient.

Composite fillings may be the best choice if you want the most natural finish possible and for your fillings to be unnoticeable. They are customized to match your enamel to blend in when you smile and generally last 10 to 12 years before needing to be replaced.
