Filling Worries: How You’re Getting It All Wrong

What is it that you’re worrying about when it comes to your dental filling that you need right now (or should have already received)? In most cases, we find that the things patients are worrying about are actually the things they should be excited about. Not sure you’re catching on to what we’re saying here? Consider some very helpful explanations that will show you the light: Fillings are all around good choices. Procrastinating when you need one? Now that’s when things get dicey!

You’re Worried About Discomfort

It’s not worth worrying about getting a dental filling because you think it will be uncomfortable. The process is actually very easy and causes just about no discomfort. That’s because we are careful and because we use an anesthetic to numb your tissues. We also offer sedation, should you require it. If you’re going to worry about discomfort, then worry about not getting your filling. When you wait to fill a cavity, it gets bigger. It gets deeper. It exposes more nerve endings. Ignoring a cavity can hurt. Treating one will keep you feeling just fine.

You’re Worried About Your Appearance

Naturally, when you need a treatment for your smile, you want things to stay the same or to look better. You want your smile to look like a natural healthy smile. You don’t want unsightly restorations. Good news: We offer composite dental fillings. When you treat your tooth, it looks whole and healthy again. Ignore the decay, however, and your tooth can look unsightly due to a visible cavity or due to breakage if your tooth does not hold up!
