Tooth Fillings

Do you have a cavity? Tooth decay is a widespread and serious issue that affects both children and adults. To repair a tooth afflicted with decay, you may need a tooth filling. At Wager Evans Dental we use tooth-colored composite resin to create dependable, natural-looking dental fillings. Dental fillings are suitable both for children and adults. We can address your cavities and ensure your smile remains bright and beautiful.

How Do I Know If I Need a Filling?

Tooth fillings are necessary for teeth that have cavities. One of the earliest indicators of a cavity is tooth sensitivity to cold or hot temperatures or a persistent toothache. If you notice an aching tooth that continues after 48 hours, you should see Dr. Evans right away. Without treatment, the cavity will continue to spread, potentially causing an infection. Soon, you may be at risk for a more expensive procedure or losing the tooth altogether. If you think you may have a cavity, then Dr. Evans will examine your tooth and assess the cause and extent of your decay. We may then recommend a tooth filling.

Receiving Metal-Free Fillings

Metal-free fillings will protect your oral health and your smile’s beauty. The dentist will tint the composite resin, so that the repair blends in with surrounding tooth structure. All-white fillings bond to the tooth, which creates a strong restoration. If you have any questions about receiving our tooth fillings or treating cavities, contact our office today. We want to ensure that you and your family enjoy natural-looking restorations and a relaxing dental experience.
