West Allis Dental Fillings
A Solution for Cavities, Damaged, or Decayed Teeth
For all the snackers, sweet tooths, and all-nighter slumber partiers, cavities are a word we dread to hear! Cavities, which are a version of tooth decay that targets the enamel of your tooth and forms as a small hole, often occur when starchy foods and bacteria form acidic plaque that eats away at the tooth. When the tooth experiences destruction, you might experience toothaches, tooth sensitivity, and varying sensations of pain to consuming hot or cold foods. Your teeth may even stain, or you may experience no symptoms at all. But when you have a cavity, the next step is clear: you have to seek treatment before the condition of the tooth worsens or you need more extensive treatment. As always, it is very important to practice preventive care at home and come in every six months for a checkup.
Years of Protection in One Visit
Dental fillings can be applied in one appointment and are a proven way to effectively restore teeth to their healthy strength and function. Originally made of metal amalgam, they are now available to be made in a color-matched porcelain, which many patients prefer for cosmetic reasons. When you come in for a filling, your tooth can be restored to its normal function and shape by first numbing the area to alleviate any pain, gently removing the signs of decay, cleaning the affected area, and sealing it with the filling material. Fillings are widely used and can last several years.
