Tooth fillings are a procedure by which we can repair a tooth that has a decayed or damaged part. By removing the decayed, cracked, or otherwise damaged portion we can then fill the material with an aesthetically matching material, and your tooth is as good as new.
The best type of filling is colored and matching the natural color of the tooth. These are called composites, and not only do they blend in beautifully with the natural tooth, but they restore the original shape of the tooth and reinforce the strength and structure.
The procedure for placing the old metal fillings required dentist to remove a lot of the natural tooth structure, removing more than just the decay, and even removing healthy tooth. Because of the way they were placed, they actually weakened the structure of the tooth over time. Early signs of metal filling failure include fractures in the tooth, leaking around the filling, chipping, and breakage.
I had to have a serious procedure done that is actually going to take 3 stages. I have had a lot of anxiety on this much needed procedure. I have never experienced a dentist or dental staff as thorough and thoughtful as Dr. Wolf and his team. They often call or text to make sure I am ok!!! It is evident that they truly care for their patients. I highly recommend them for any dental work. You will be glad that you did.Laura N.
My wife and I have been going to Dyer dental care for about two years. We have received excellent dental care. The entire staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. I would recommend them to anyone.George C.
