My Teeth Look Brand New!
“I will admit it I am not a spring chicken anymore. I did have amalgam fillings that were several years old. I guess they wore out and my teeth were chipping and cracking around them. I came in to see Dr. Chung and he cautioned me that if we didn’t remove them and replace them my teeth could be permanently damaged. I didn’t want to pay for that many, but with the kind help of their team, I have my finances in place and got all the ruined ones replaced, all painlessly using sedation. I am so glad I did. I can look in the mirror and I feel like my teeth are brand new. I love my smile.”
Tooth Decay in Portland Can Be Easily Treated
When you are faced with tooth decay and dental fillings are the best option, there are a variety of materials that can be used to replace the removed cavity such as composite and porcelain. Dentists will use these materials to alter the shape of your tooth surface to improve your bite and chewing surface and provide a comfortable resting position for your teeth and gums. The main aim of dental restoration is to help restore your tooth to its original shape, function and appearance. Dr. Chung understands that emergencies happen and urgent dentistry is needed, so we are available by phone 24 hours a day for your convenience and also offer sedation dentistry. Call now and come in for a free consultation to learn what treatments are needed for your dental health. Call today in Portland for dental fillings (503) 902-6604
Composite Resin Strengthens Teeth
Composite resins consist of a silicon dioxide-filled, tooth-colored plastic mixture that is cured by a blue light to restore your teeth to an attractive healthy state you will love. Because composites are not made of metal, we can mix and match different shades to match the natural color of the surrounding teeth. Another advantage to using composite bonds involves the strengthening and support the remaining tooth structure will receive. Composite fillings will actually insulate against temperature changes and will even inhibit continuing breakage. Composites are now more durable and are touted to last seven to ten years, which is as long as amalgams will last. But what is most desirable about composites is that it allows Dr. Chung to keep more of your natural tooth structure intact than amalgams. We believe the more natural structure you keep the healthier and longer lasting your normal teeth will be.

Do Not Cheat Yourself on Dental Care
Along with brushing and flossing regularly, it is recommended for everyone who has teeth to receive regular dental check-ups for good oral health. If neglected, you may incur tooth pain, nerve pain, and infection, which may lead to enough decay to warrant a root canal or even extraction. As you live your day to day life, your tooth enamel naturally comes in contact with your mouth’s saliva and the food that you eat and causes plaque build-up (sticky film that contains decay producing bacteria) on your tooth’s enamel. As this plaque hardens, it becomes tartar that regular brushing and flossing cannot eliminate. Dental cleanings scrape the tartar and plaque off for nice clean teeth. If your dental care is neglected it may lead to treatments such as dental implants, crowns, dental bridges and cosmetic dentures that could have been avoided by simple cleanings and good oral hygiene. Do not cheat yourself on dental care and do it all painlessly by sedation dentistry. Call Dr. Chung at Springwater Dental for dental fillings in Portland. (503) 902-6604
What Can I Do For My Children With Regard to Tooth Decay?
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that the first visit to a dentist occur around the time the first tooth erupts in the mouth. This is a great time to discuss diet, hygiene, tooth decay, prevention and fluoride with Dr. Chung. The first full examination should be around two to two and a half years old. It is also recommended that you start wiping your baby’s gums with a soft cloth after each feeding. You should also introduce the toothbrush, brushing twice a day when the first tooth erupts. Use a non-fluoride toothpaste until your child is able to spit and only use a pea sized amount of toothpaste. Please supervise your children until they are able to remove all plaque on their own.
