Fillings and Sealants
Tooth decay and cavities are both common dental issues. Receiving tooth-colored fillings can restore your teeth and help to prevent simple decay from becoming something worse.
Tooth Fillings and Sealants
Cavities are one of the most common dental problems. Even with good oral hygiene and regular dental cleanings, it’s still possible for decay to eat into your tooth enamel. Fortunately, repairing cavities often involves no more than tooth fillings, one of the most common dental treatments. We use tooth-colored composite fillings instead of amalgam fillings, which contain metal as well as mercury and other elements. Because we can match them to the color of the rest of your teeth, our metal-free fillings blend easily into your smile.
The best way to deal with cavities is to prevent them from occurring in the first place. We recommend visiting our office every six months for dental cleanings. Our hygienists will remove plaque and bacteria from your teeth using instruments that make it simple to get into hidden spots that are easy to miss when brushing and flossing at home. We may also recommend additional general dental care like dental sealants to help prevent decay.
If you have more questions about fillings and sealants, or if you would like to schedule an appointment or contact our office and we will be happy to discuss further.
