Dental Fillings

Dental Fillings in Wichita Falls, TX 

The Best Solution for Cavities, Chips, & Cracks

Tooth decay is the primary reason patients need to get a dental filling. Although tooth decay is a serious problem and can permanently destroy natural teeth without treatment, dental fillings are often the best remedy for it. First, the decay is thoroughly removed, and then the cavity (hole) is filling with porcelain and composite resin that is color-matched to the natural tooth. Gone are the days of painfully obvious metal fillings that made people hesitant to smile or even get treatment in the first place. Not only are the fillings virtually undetectable, but they also often last more than 15 years. 

Why Do I Need a Filling?

Most patients who undergo dental filling treatment have cavities caused by tooth decay. However, there are other bad habits that may lead to the need for a dental filling, such as tooth grinding, biting your nails, or consistently chewing ice (all bad ideas!). The first sign of a cavity may be a toothache or tooth sensitivity, which could indicate you have tooth decay or trauma that requires immediate treatment. Fillings are a good restorative treatment to fix damage caused by cavities and other issues. Remember, even a small amount of tooth decay can progress to a much bigger problem later on, eventually causing you to lose your natural teeth. 

Restorative Dental Work to Meet Your Needs

At Value Smiles, you can expect a wide range of restorative dental options to meet your needs. For example, dental fillings are minor restorative work and can be placed in just one appointment once your treatment plan is in motion. Other options to restore teeth include dental crowns, should your tooth decay be too extensive to warrant a dental filling. No matter your situation, we encourage you to book routine dental exams and checkups with Value Smiles.
