How dental fillings from The Dental Spa in Woodbridge can help you

You want to enjoy your chocolate chip cookies and you don’t want to worry about tooth decay or cavities. Now, you don’t have to! Thanks to modern dental techniques and procedures, you can receive a filling that will make your tooth stronger, and enhance your smile! Your Cavitiesdentists at The Dental Spa in Woodbridge, VA want you to be able to enjoy chocolate chip cookies without worrying about cavities.

Cavities are caused from dental decay which results when sugars in the food you eat mix with bad bacteria and form an acid. This acid eats away your precious tooth structure. When you see your dentists at The Dental Spa they will remove the decay and restore your tooth back to health. You can choose from a wide variety of materials depending on your preferences and the location in your mouth.

Consider these filling materials:

  • Metal fillings--if you want the strongest material available; metal fillings are typically placed on back teeth where you need chewing and biting strength.
  • Composite fillings--if you want cosmetic beauty, because your dentists at The Dental Spa will color-match the composite material perfectly; your new filling becomes a virtually invisible addition to your smile.
  • Porcelain fillings--if you want the most cosmetically beautiful filling material; these fillings require more than one appointment because they are created in a dental laboratory and cemented at a later appointment.
  • Glass ionomer fillings--if you have decay along the gumline and want a filling that is very natural-looking; glass ionomer fillings are not placed in an area that is exposed to the stress of chewing and biting.

For badly broken or damaged teeth, your dentists at The Dental Spa may suggest a crown, to protect your tooth against fracture and further breakage. You can choose a crown made of gold, porcelain-fused to metal or pure porcelain, depending on if you want strength, beauty or both.

So now you can enjoy chocolate chip cookies without fear of cavities! You deserve to eat the foods you love without worry, so it’s time to call your dentists at The Dental Spa in Woodbridge, VA and find out how they can help you with dental fillings. Call today and get started on protecting your teeth!
