Why Schedule An Ahh Smile Dental Filling?

As it is almost impossible to completely avoid bacteria, bacteria currently founds its way in your mouth and becomes plaque. Through poor oral hygiene and neglecting regular dental cleanings, plaque can have a severe effect on your teeth. The acidic nature of plaque eats away at your teeth, constantly destroying the tooth. Eventually, holes occur within the tooth, commonly referred to as cavities. Fortunately, dental fillings can repair the tooth decay and cavity by filling in the hole in the tooth and bringing it back to normal function and shape. Dental fillings also close off spaces where bacteria can enter, which prevents further decay.

Choosing not to get a dental filling and treating a cavity will let it continue to grow. If a cavity is not treated it can destroy the tooth and make it extremely difficult to destroy a significant part of the tooth. If such thing happens, dental fillings cannot cure the tooth anymore and only a dental crown can fix it. Furthermore, letting it continue to grow past this point can lead to an infection of the pulp, which leads to a painful abscess that only a root canal can fix. Further neglect can lead to a mandatory extraction.

To put it simply, if you have a cavity, it is critical to schedule a dental filling and avoid further complications. With various dental filling options available, Ahh Smile can get your tooth right back to health, eliminating any future complications.

Ahh Smile Dental Filling Options in Laredo Texas, and Zapata, Texas

Ahh Smile offers a variety of options of dental fillings featuring different materials and finishes that will accommodate every patient’s needs and preferences. With gold dental fillings, amalgam silver dental fillings, plastic resins and porcelain dental fillings, patients can choose the option most aesthetically pleasing to them.

Here are a few of Ahh Smile dental filling options available for patients in Laredo and Zapata:

Composite dental fillings – Composite fillings are relatively new in comparison to other dental fillings and are improving by the day. Composite dental fillings Dentists take the plastic resin and harden it through a series of bright blue lights that cause chemical reactions. The process results in a strong material highly resemblant of a natural tooth.

Amalgam dental fillings – Amalgam dental fillings are the oldest fillings to be developed. Most people recognize amalgam dental fillings by their prominent silver finish. Amalgam dental fillings are highly resistant and cost efficient, but are occasionally regarded as less aesthetically pleasing than other dental fillings, such as composite or porcelain dental fillings.

Porcelain dental fillings – Porcelain dental fillings are almost unnoticeable, as they can be matched to the color of your teeth. They are known to be more resistant than other metal dental fillings and are unlikely to loosen up or have any effect on the structure of your tooth. Porcelain dental fillings are typically used when a cavity is large or in an area where maximum chewing pressure is required. Due to their natural tooth color, it is also an optimal option for areas that are highly visible during talking or smiling.

In addition to these options, Ahh Smile offers various alternative dental filling materials. Contact Ahh Smile in Laredo, Texas or Zapata, Texas to find more information and to schedule your dental filling procedure today.
