Getting a cavity filled is a bittersweet moment. It’s nice because your tooth doesn’t hurt anymore, and your tooth is back to its strong self. But one of the downsides of a cavity is that you’re left with a gray, cement-colored filling afterward.
That’s not exactly the definition of a great smile. And, if you’re having a big cavity filled, that only makes it more noticeable! Believe it or not, but it can subconsciously affect your self-esteem and willingness to be outgoing in social and professional situations.
Here’s the good thing, though – you have some options at your disposal.
Go with gold
If you go ask a dentist about gold fillings, chances are they have a lot of information to share with you. Yes, these are made from real gold. The cost reflects that, but gold is a soft, malleable metal that works well for a filling. And it looks better than the usual option!
This is the best resin to use if you want Dr. Scott Chandler to fill your cavities in as discreet a way as possible. A composite resin is made of different materials that combine to create a tooth-colored filling. It’s mostly plastic, with a few other materials mixed in for durability
Putting effort and time into choosing the right filling material makes a difference. Everyone here at Silver Creek Dental in Payson, Utah, has seen that happen firsthand.
