Cavities are a common dental issue, and they affect many patients during their lives. Oral bacteria metabolize nutrients, creating harmful substances like acids. These substances can dissolve the enamel that encases a tooth, and that is how a cavity begins to form. If detected early during a dental exam, we can treat it with a dental filling to help stop it from growing larger. If left untreated, other dental treatments, like a root canal, may be required to restore your oral health.

What are Dental Fillings?

We prefer to use safe, biocompatible tooth-composite resin to create our fillings. They blend in with your other healthy teeth and offer several advantages over metal amalgam fillings, such as being more cosmetically pleasing, creating a tighter seal against bacteria, and reducing risk for patients who may have a metal allergy.
