Clifton dental fillings
If you have pain in your tooth when you eat something sweet you may indeed have a dental cavity. Of course, no cavity will ever go away by itself, so the sooner you come in for treatment, the easier it will be to have your cavity treated. However, you can be assured that your cavity treatment at our Premier Family Dental Care center will be perfectly comfortable and pain-free. Additionally, when you have cavity treatment at our dental office, you will have a choice of two different types of Clifton dental fillings.
At our dental practice, our expert and highly trained dentist is Dr. Shahmehdi. Dr. Shahmehdi has been providing exemplary dental care to members of our community for over seven years. When patients come to us and need to have dental fillings, we are happy to be able to offer two different types of filling materials. At our practice we offer traditional silver amalgam fillings as well as tooth-colored cosmetic fillings. Each of these filling materials that are used for Clifton dental fillings has its own benefits and drawbacks. Our dentist will be able to discuss the benefits of each once he has had a chance to review your particular cavity situation. Recommendation on the type of filling material to be used for your Clifton dental fillings will most likely be based on the size and location of the cavity.
If you have a cavity that is on the flat chewing surface of a back molar it is most likely that our dentist will recommend that you get a silver amalgam filling. This is because the silver amalgam fillings are much stronger, and can therefore much better withstand the vigorous chewing forces that are experienced by back teeth. However, if you have a cavity on part of your tooth that shows when you speak or smile, our dentist will probably recommend that you have a tooth-colored composite filling which is much more aesthetically pleasing. While composite fillings are not as strong as amalgam fillings, they do have other benefits. Tooth-colored composite fillings actually bond to the tooth so they do strengthen the tooth. In order to prepare the tooth for this type of filling, generally our dentist will need to remove less tooth enamel then he would with and amalgam filling. However, composite fillings can be more costly since they do take more time to apply. You may want to talk to your insurance company to make sure they cover this type of procedure.

Do you have cosmetic smile problems that make you unhappy when you look in the mirror? Do you wish that there were an easy and cost-effective way to make your smile beautiful and inviting? Well, there is! If you have cosmetic smile problems such as chipped teeth, or severely yellowed teeth, there is an excellent chance that these problems can be easily fixed with the use of porcelain dental veneers. If you would like to learn if dental veneers can solve your smile problems, you will do well to make an appointment to come in to our Clifton dental office for a consultation.
At our Clifton dental office, Premier Family Dental Care, our expert and highly-trained general and cosmetic dentist is Dr. Seyed Shahmehdi. Dr. Shahmehdi also offers patients dental implants and treatment with Invisalign teeth straightening system. When a patient comes in with cosmetic smile issues, many times Dr. Shahmehdi will recommend the use of porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are a cost-effective and beautiful way to correct many common smile problems. Dental veneers are actually thin porcelain shells that are made to cover only the front portion of a tooth. They do not serve to strengthen the tooth, or improve its function. However, porcelain veneers can take a not so attractive smile and make it a true knock out! Porcelain veneers are permanently attached to the patient’s teeth, and will last for many years. Sometimes a bit of enamel must be removed from the teeth for them to be attached, so it is important that this procedure is done by our experienced dentist, Dr. Shahmehdi.
At our Clifton dental office we love to see our patients as they walk out with their new porcelain veneers. Not only do they now have great smiles, but we can tell that their self-esteem has had a great boost as well, and it is evident in the way they smile. Smile problems that are easily corrected with porcelain veneers are: teeth that are too short; teeth with uneven gaps between them; teeth that are slightly misaligned; teeth that are chipped; teeth that have superficial cracks in the enamel; teeth that are misshapen; teeth that are severely discolored and cannot be whitened by dental bleaching methods; and many other smile problems. Our dentist will be sure to perfectly match the veneers to the adjacent teeth so no one will ever be able to tell that you are wearing them. If you would like to learn if dental veneers can solve your cosmetic smile problem, call us at Premier Family Dental Care for an appointment.
