Getting a cavity filled is the end of a process that can be a bit uncomfortable. But one of the downsides of a cavity is that you’re left with a gray, cement-colored filling afterward.

That doesn’t make your smile all that amazing, does it? And if you have a big cavity filled, then the filling itself is pretty hard to miss. That makes you more self-conscious in everything from business meetings to dates. .

The good news is that you have other options.

Go with gold
A good dentist will be able to give you information about using gold as a filling material. Yes, these are made from real gold. It obviously costs more, but gold is effective since it’s so soft. And it looks better than the usual option!

Composite resin
This is the option that Dr. Pam Chamberland is most likely to recommend if you want a discreet filling. A composite resin is made of multiple materials designed to be tooth-colored, durable, and impossible to spot.

Here at Chamberland Dentistry in Shelbyville, Tennessee, we’ve seen firsthand just what kind of difference a great filling can make. We recommend these different options because we know they work, and we want to see you have the best smile possible. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call us today at 931-684-9167.
