Grand Blanc Dental Fillings
Maintaining Total Dental Health
Prevention is the single most important aspect of your dental health. By going for regular cleanings and dental exams, you will enable your dental health care team to identify and treat any problems that may have developed.
Rather than letting small issues become larger, call on our skilled Genesee County dentistry team to provide you with dental fillings. These can help to prevent further damage such as abscesses, broken teeth and/or crowns.
Types of Fillings
Most fillings will be comprised of one of these types of materials:
- Glass ionomer or resin fillings; these are generally used for baby teeth
- Porcelain fillings are made to look similar to remaining enamel
- Composite fillings can be color matched to the tooth around it
- Amalgam fillings which are typically called silver fillings
The best type of filling for you will depend on several different factors, including the size and location of the cavity. Fortunately, we have decades of experience and can work with you to determine your best course of action.
At Werschky, Lewis & Slatton Family Dentistry, we are proud to offer excellent cavity detection and dental fillings to keep our patients healthy throughout Genesee County. We serve patients of all ages and with a wide variety of dental health challenges.
Signs You Need a Dental Filling
Signs indicating a possible need for a dental filling include:
- Tooth pain or sensitivity, especially when eating or drinking hot, cold, or sweet foods.
- Visible holes or pits on the tooth surface.
- Rough edges on the tooth.
- Discoloration or staining on the tooth.
- Sudden pain when biting down.
If you notice any of these signs, it's advisable to consult our Grand Blanc dentist for an evaluation and appropriate treatment.
