Do you want to be like a family member who hates their dentures?
Benefit from fine dentistry and do it right the first time.
Teeth are designed to last a lifetime if kept free of plaque and regularly maintained with well spaced recall appointments. What nicer than to have your dentist say “ All is fine, your gums are healthy and your plaque control is immaculate and your smile is beautiful ”.
Regular daily brushing and flossing pays enormous dividends.
Healthy Back Teeth
Run your tongue over your teeth and see how they feel. There is no way to feel a defective filling unless the tooth is chipped; cracked; or the gums are bleeding.
These two pictures illustrate fillings that need to be replaced because of the inability to floss; recurrent dental decay; and the potential for fracture. They are promoting gum disease which is a slow ongoing and generally painless process and eventually results in tooth loss. These teeth have been filled inadequately and are waiting for problems to develop.
No dentistry is the best dentistry. One should do regular brushing and flossing and exercise a discretionary intake of sweets and chocolates.
How many times would you like a tooth to be filled in your lifetime? Why not do things properly the first time by choosing the correct restorative material and having the work done to a high level of clinical excellence. Amalgam; gold; or porcelain are to be the materials of choice.
