When your teeth suffer from tooth decay (or cavities), it creates holes, which exposes the sensitive material such as tissue and nerves in your teeth. This can cause tooth sensitivity and pain. Dr. Kishore will examine your teeth for decay during your checkup. If he finds cavities or decay, he may recommend our metal-free dental fillings to restore and protect your teeth.
For years, dental fillings were made from a metallic material that contained mercury. These fillings are unaesthetic, and can potentially be harmful to your health. For these reasons, Dr. Kishore offers a more advanced solution with tooth colored fillings.
These fillings are made from a composite material that matches the color of your natural teeth. It is very strong, and can last for an entire lifetime in some cases. Composite fillings have become the preferred method for treating tooth decay for most dentists instead of amalgam fillings.
Our tooth colored fillings support the natural structure of your tooth. Once the restoration is placed, you won’t need any special care instructions aside from practicing good oral hygiene. You can brush and floss normally.
To help your fillings last as long as possible, good oral hygiene is very important. Many patients are able to enjoy the benefits of their fillings for their entire lifetime with regular brushing, flossing, and dental checkups at the dentist.
Dr. Kishore is an experienced dentist that works very gently. Getting dental fillings is a nearly painless procedure, and is very routine. Contact our office today at 590-773-3282 to schedule your appointment, or to go over any questions or concerns you may have.
