Do I Have a Cavity?

Some people are more prone to cavities than others, but even so, nearly 90% of adults will have a cavity at one point or another.

The key to treating a cavity is early detection, so keep an eye out for common signals like:

  • Fits by touching
  • Pain when chewing
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Soreness on one side of your mouth

However, some cavities show no symptoms at all! A dental checkup is the only way to know for sure if you are dealing with tooth decay and need a filling.

Advantages of White Composite Fillings

An estimated 100 million people have silver (amalgam) Fillings! Silver fillings are bright and noticeable every time you open your mouth, laugh, or even speak. Conversely, white fillings are created with a similar color and texture to match your natural teeth and be nearly invisible!

White Composite Fillings

  • Materials: A strong, durable, beautiful, and safe quartz-like material.
  • Appearance: Natural-looking and nearly invisible.
  • Treatment: White fillings are bonded directly to your teeth and require minimal removal of your healthy tooth structure.

Mercury Silver Fillings

  • Materials: Contains approximately 50% mercury and is a noticeably different texture than your teeth.
  • Appearance: Bright silver filling that stands out.
  • Treatment: Requires the drilling and removal of healthy tooth structure.
