You know you aren’t the first person to have this problem. For that matter, this may not be the first time you’ve had this problem.

There’s no denying it. You have a cavity. The only question is: What are you going to do about it?

Ignoring it is not a good idea. Getting a metal filling is not ideal. If you live in or near Claremore, OK, you can visit LakeCrest Dental. Here, you can get a tooth-colored filling.

Call 918-921-9583 now to make your appointment before your cavity turns into something worse.

Eat Without Pain

Too often people will wait until their tooth begins to hurt before they decide to deal with their tooth decay. Earlier intervention can often save you from tooth sensitivity. Just something to keep in mind.

When you do decide to do something, the primary purpose of your filling is to restore the function of your tooth. You want to bite and chew without wincing. Eating should be something you enjoy, after all.

This is part of the reason metal fillings (whether gold or amalgam) were so popular for so long. They did an excellent job of restoring the function of damaged teeth.

They are durable, too, which is important for another reason. It’s safe to say that most people don’t want their cavities to come back. Having a filling provides protection against recurring decay.

Please remember that no filling lasts forever, so you will want to replace any filling that is showing signs of wear and tear.

Smile Without Worry

As good as metal fillings are at restoring function and protecting teeth, they don’t do much for your smile. In fact, several patients have told us they felt self-conscious about the smiles because of those fillings for a long time.

These patients were so grateful for the chance to get our composite fillings as replacements. These fillings also allow you to eat comfortably and protect against more decay. The big difference is that they also restore the natural appearance of your tooth.

Instead of standing out when you smile, your fillings could blend in so other people don’t even know that you had a cavity (unless you decide to tell them yourself).

Whether you have a new cavity or an old filling that’s ready to be replaced, our team in Claremore wants you to protect your teeth and feel great about your smile. Just ask to learn how you can get one of our tooth-colored fillings.

Don’t Forget Preventive Care

While we are happy that we can help you repair your tooth and restore your smile, it’s even better when you remain free from cavities. The best way to do that is to make preventive care a priority. Brush twice daily. Floss daily. And get regular cleanings and exams at LakeCrest Dental.
