Why do I need a filling?

Tooth-colored composite resin allows your dentist to protect and stabilize a compromised tooth, or beautify your smile and correct minor smile flaws. 

Protect Decaying or Damaged Teeth

Dental fillings are used to protect and stabilize a tooth that has been weakened as a result of decay. Typically, fillings are enlisted to treat cavities, but they serve other purposes as well.

Your Naylors Court Dental Partners dentist can determine if you have a cavity that requires removing decay and using a dental filling. Tooth decay that is left untreated can result in severe pain and necessitate a root canal to save your tooth.

Your dental filling can last over ten years if there are no issues. During every dental checkup and exam, Dr. Virmani will check your filling to ensure it is not loose or needs replacing. 

Dental fillings are also used to treat teeth that have been slightly chipped, broken, or fractured. Your Pikesville dentist will likely recommend a tooth-colored or white composite filling. Fractures and chips can happen through injury, a slip and fall, car accident, or any other hard contact to your teeth. Even chewing on hard surfaces like pencils, ice, or hard candy can cause damage to your teeth. 

Improve Your Smile

While people commonly associate fillings with cavities and dental work, your Pikesville dentist can also apply white-colored filling to yellow or discolored teeth. As we age, our teeth can become stained due to the foods and beverages we enjoy, or through smoking and drinking alcohol.

Through a cosmetic dental procedure known as dental bonding, you can create a beautiful, white smile. If you have yellowed and stained teeth that don’t seem to improve after teeth whitening, contact Naylors Court Dental Partners to go through your options.
