Tooth and Cavity Fillings in Nashua, NH

Welcome to Advanced Family Dentistry - Dentist Nashua, NH

Identifying and addressing cavities early can prevent the need for more complex and costly dental procedures. If cavities are found before there has been significant decay, the tooth can be restored with a filling.

Once a tooth has a cavity, the decay will continue to spread unless the decayed area is removed and the tooth is properly restored. Leaving cavities untreated can lead to the need for more significant restorative procedures such as crowns, bridges, root canals, or dental implants.

While metal (amalgam) fillings used to be common, tooth-colored composite material is now the most recommended filling material. The composite material blends in with the natural tooth and is less noticeable than a metal filling. The tooth-colored filling is not as affected by heat and cold as the metal fillings, so the patient is less likely to experience temperature-related sensitivity.

Another important reason composite fillings have replaced amalgam fillings is that they do not use mercury, which was present in metal fillings. Many patients are choosing to have their older amalgam fillings replaced with tooth-colored fillings for this reason.

The silver or the mercury filling that you had done long back looks quite outdated now. It’s true that they are not pleasing to the eyes and at the same time they hamper the structure of the tooth.

Should be 10 stars without a doubt. It's taken me sometime to figure out how to write a review for such an amazing place and I'm not sure I'll do it justice still. From the owner to her staff everyone I had the pleasure of interacting with was nothing short of perfection. They all were so friendly and understanding. I had some major work done throughout a few appointments and to be honest when I was living in FL I had the perfect dentist so of course I was nervous about someone new but wow from the moment I walked through the door I knew I found perfection twice. Anyone looking for services they offer should immediately look no further. Trust me you won't regret it. I did want to grab some photos but I'll have to grab them next time I'm there. I may update this review if I can find a better way to word things im trying to say.

I had not been to the dentist in over 10 yrs so I was uneasy about my visit. The team at Advanced Family Dentistry put me at ease. I met Angela who was assigned my case. It could not have been better! Angela was professional and went above and beyond in how she explained everything she was doing. I could not have asked for a better person to take care of me. I am so glad my daughter pushed me to go. My teeth feel great!

Dr Bhat, Jessie and her entire staff were fantastic. They were all welcoming, very friendly and informative. After my dental office closed another search was on and since dental check ups haven't been my favorite I'm thankful I came across Advanced Family Dentistry. I highly recommend this practice.😁
