Tooth Fillings

Dr. Kiehl on Tooth Fillings Read Transcript

Tooth fillings are the most common dental restoration. But that doesn’t mean our Nashua, NH dentists haven’t put a lot of thought into them.

We use fillings made of sturdy, tooth-colored resin composite instead of traditional metal fillings. That’s because resin fillings offer so many benefits. Among them:

  • Natural appearance. Resin fillings are practically invisible in your mouth. No more gray or black fillings to mar your smile!
  • Less modification of teeth. Our doctors don’t need to remove as much tooth structure to place a resin filling. So you are less likely to need a more extensive restoration like a dental crown in the future.
  • No health concerns. While there is no conclusive proof, some studies have linked the mercury used in amalgam fillings to health problems.

If you think you need a tooth filling, call Nashua Family Dentistry at 603-546-7460.

Preventing Further Dental Damage

If we find a cavity during your regular dental exam, we’ll want to place a tooth filling right away. We pride ourselves on our flexibility, which allows us to deal with dental issues right away instead of making you schedule a second appointment.

Cavities can quickly become a much larger area of decay. If that happens, you’ll need a more complex and costly restoration like a dental inlay or onlay, or even a dental crown. So tooth fillings can save you time, hassle, and expense.

You Won’t Feel Pain with Our Tooth Fillings

Because a tooth filling sometimes involves the soft pulp inside your tooth, we’ll thoroughly numb the area with a local anesthetic. We never want you to feel any discomfort! To further soothe you, we can offer:

  • Music to distract you while we work
  • Blankets
  • Pillows

And if you’re feeling especially anxious about the procedure, we can use dental sedation to completely relax you.

For a stress-free, amalgam-free tooth filling, call Nashua Family Dentistry at 603-546-7460. Or use our convenient online form to schedule an appointment with one of our Nashua, NH dentists.
