Have you been experiencing a toothache or tooth sensitivity? Think you can see a hole in one of your teeth? You may be suffering from tooth decay and forming a cavity! At Bronxville Dentistry we are proud to offer dental fillings in Bronxville for our patients that are interested in restoring the health and function of their tooth along with preventing additional issues. Not sure you have a cavity and need a dental filling? Common symptoms of a cavity include:
Many patients however experience no symptoms until the issue has progressed, visiting your dentist routinely can drastically reduce your risk of tooth decay, cavities, infections and even disease. We recommend visits at least twice a year. If you experience any of the above symptoms, schedule an appointment with Bronxville Dentistry, we’d be happy to determine the best treatment option for your smile.
Left untreated, tooth decay and cavities can become a serious problem. Tooth decay can increase your risk of gum disease, oral infections, infected tooth roots and the need for more invasive treatment options. Ultimately, tooth decay leads to tooth loss.
Silver “amalgam” fillings were the only option in dentistry for a very long time, however, research has shown that some amalgam fillings may contain mercury (a toxic liquid metal). Along with the potential health risks, amalgam fillings leave the patients smile looking dotted with dark spots.
Tooth-colored dental fillings are a more appealing and healthy option for our patients. Each dental filling is matched with the patients smile, allowing it to blend with their natural tooth. Tooth-colored dental fillings are durable and can provide protection for many years with proper at-home and professional dental care.
