Tooth-Colored Fillings in Waukee, IA

Dental cavities are one of the most common oral health problems encountered by dentists. They are caused by bacteria on the surface of the teeth. These bacteria secrete acids that break down the enamel causing holes (or cavities) to appear on the surface. If left unchecked, these cavities can grow until the entire tooth structure becomes weak and susceptible to breakage or cracking. Tooth-colored fillings are used to fill in the cavity to prevent further deterioration and to restore the teeth back to normal function. These materials can also be used to repair chipped teeth.

Tooth-colored fillings are made of a combination of composite and plastic resins. They are quite durable and can withstand pressure from chewing. Tooth-colored fillings are preferred to silver amalgam because they restore the teeth back to their normal appearance. Our tooth-colored fillings in Waukee are composed of top-quality composite resins and are long-lasting.

What Type of Filling Do I Need?

This is dependent on your particular situation. Our dental professionals will help you determine what is most suitable for you. Some of the factors that will be considered include the size of the cavity, what tooth is affected, and the cost of the material in question. At Lush Family Dental in Waukee, we offer composite fillings which are strong and can’t be distinguished from your real teeth.

What Happens if Cavities Aren’t Treated?

If cavities are left unchecked, they will grow larger. Soon enough, the bacteria will go on to reach the internal dental structure causing very severe damage. At that stage, you might need a root canal treatment to repair the damage. We encourage you to visit us as soon as possible if you believe you have a cavity.

Does a Filling Hurt?

With proper anesthesia, the process of getting a filling is not painful.
