Tooth Colored Fillings
Harmful bacteria on the tooth can lead to decay. Our dentist can remove the decay and fill the area. Tooth colored fillings are made out of porcelain or composite resin, which is undetectable and offers an aesthetically pleasing solution for a decayed tooth. This protects the tooth from infection and further decay.
When cavities are left untreated, tooth decay can often cause pain and discomfort, which can lead to infection. The cavity-infected tooth may eventually require a root canal or extraction.
You can decrease your risk of cavities and other dental diseases by:
- Brushing your teeth twice a day
- Flossing daily
- Keeping up with regular professional cleanings
