Let Stevens Dental Fill That Cavity!

Ouch! Cavities are painful and require treatment by an experienced dentist to help prevent infection and reduce the risk of losing the tooth. At Stevens Dental, our experienced dentists and hygienists can help determine if you have a cavity and what type of filling may be necessary to stop the decay and help bring the tooth back to a functioning level of health.

If you can feel that nagging cavity, do not hesitate to call (208) 504-0968 and schedule an appointment with one of our Boise dentists.

Types of Cavity Fillings

There are some tell-tale signs that you may be facing a cavity. Many patients complain of painful teeth or jaws, throbbing headaches, hot and cold sensitivity, or sensitivity to sweets. Infections can be seen by physical examination within the mouth or by X-rays. Once a cavity is detected, the dentist will determine how large the decay is, how invasive it is, and what type of filling will work best.

Common cavity filling types include:

  • Porcelain fillings – These fillings are made to look as close to the natural color of the tooth as possible but will not fade with the natural tooth. Porcelain is bonded to the teeth and can last for many years.
  • Composite fillings – Composite is a resin-based filling that matches the color of the tooth and wears with the tooth over time. Because of the natural wearing of the composite, the filling may need to be replaced.
  • Gold fillings – Gold is a hardy mineral that can last up to 20 years once it is bonded to the teeth. Gold can be pricey, though the color will remain the same over time.
  • Silver fillings – Silver is a cost-effective filling that can be custom-fit to the tooth. These fillings are dark in appearance and may need to be replaced over time.

There are many factors to take into consideration when determining the type of filling that you will receive. Your budget, insurance, and overall health may deter you from obtaining a certain type of filling over the other. A dentist can discuss which option is best.
