Need a dental filling? Most people need at least one filling in their lifetime. Many dental fillings last 15 years or more, and those that aredental filling well taken care of — may last longer. Dr. Terence Geary and Dr. Mary Eileen Geary at Geary Dentistry in Brookfield, WI, offers a complete range of dental services. Here are five reasons why you may need a filling.

1. You have a dental cavity.

Dental plaque is a colorless film of bacteria that builds up on the teeth. This acidic substance eats away at the enamel and can lead to cavities. Dental fillings are used to treat cavities. Today, tooth-colored fillings of composite resin are the preferred dental filling available.

2. You have new decay.

In some cases, a dental filling may become loose because decay has developed underneath it. When a dental filling is lost, it is important to contact your Brookfield dentist and have it replaced as soon as possible. Left untreated, a lost filling could lead to loss of the tooth.

3. You have a broken filling.

If your dental filling is broken, see your dentist as soon as possible. Your dentist will replace your broken filling with a new filling. Dental fillings are relatively simple and can be placed in a single appointment.

4. You have a broken tooth.

Chipping a tooth is a common phenomenon. Receiving a blow to the face, falling, or biting down on something hard can cause a tooth to break or chip. If you have a chipped or broken tooth, your dentist may repair the damage with a dental filling. Dental bonding and veneers are also used to restore chipped teeth.

5. You want a great smile.

Cosmetic fillings can improve the appearance of your smile. Cosmetic fillings are the most popular type of fillings, because they blend with natural teeth. Once your dentist completes your fillings, they won't be noticeable when you speak.

If you need a filling, why wait? We can help you today! Call Geary Dentistry at 262-860-1500 today to schedule a dental appointment in Brookfield, WI. We want all our patients to have strong, healthy smiles that look great, too.
