Fillings help to avoid further damage to a teeth with cavities. Dental cavities need to be fixed before further damage happens to the affected teeth. Dental Fillings can also be a solution for a chipped or broken tooth to improve the aesthetic aspects of the smile. Filling material replaces the defective tooth structure and restores the function, strength, and appearance of the tooth. At Texan Smile, we use high quality composite resins, which are tooth-colored ﬁlling materials. These are more aesthetically pleasing since they match the natural tooth color and appearance. These fillings only requires minimal removal of tooth structure compared to other options such as silver ﬁllings.
It is very important to treat cavities at the onset in order to protect the teeth from more major, potentially damaging problems in the future. Failure to diagnose and treat cavities in time can cause additional damage to the tooth structure, leading to larger ﬁllings, crown, root canal, and even complete loss of the affected tooth in severe cases. Once the treatment is completed, the dental fillings can be maintained by proper routine oral care measures, including regular brushing, mouthwash, and ﬂossing.
