Restore the health and attractiveness of your tooth
Our dentists value the relationships that are built with patients. Many conditions, including dental decay, can be avoided with routine exams and cleanings at our practice. During these appointments, we can also detect problems early in the process. Treating early-stage decay or disease sustains maximum natural tissues.
If we detect the presence of a type of tooth decay known as a cavity, fillings are the standard recommended treatment to repair this hole in the tooth. Teeth structure can erode due to the acidic combination of harmful bacteria and starches and sugars in foods and drinks. We quite literally “fill in” the damaged tooth structure or cavity with fillings. Dentists use many different materials to replace portions of the tooth that are lost. Our dentists are happy to discuss your options.
Often, patients gravitate toward “white” fillings. These fillings are generally designed from a composite resin plastic material. They are color-matched to blend in with the tooth structure that surrounds them, as well as their natural neighbors. Since they are made from non-metal materials, composite fillings are even appropriate for patients with sensitivities to metals. Non-metals are more conservative than metals or amalgam fillings, as less natural structures must be drilled away to accommodate them. Patients also appreciate that they support lasting healthy function and beauty and, with proper hygiene, look and feel as great as the day they were placed for many years to come.
