If you have a cavity (or multiple cavities), a small hole will be drilled in the tooth to remove the decay and the white filling will be inserted. Much like a dental crown or porcelain veneer, it mimics a natural tooth colour so no one will ever notice the difference.
In order to keep your smile healthy, cavities should be removed right away. Therefore, if you're experiencing the following symptoms, call our dental office to book an appointment and we'll restore your tooth with dental fillings: toothache, tooth sensitivity, visible holes or pits, and brown or black staining.
Cavities can be caused by a few different factors, including bacteria or not brushing or flossing regularly/correctly. The longer you leave bacteria in your mouth, the more you're putting your oral health at risk. Bacteria and infection can quickly spread to the rest of your teeth and even into your bloodstream if left long enough. This is also why maintaining a proper oral hygiene habit is extremely important as well as visiting our dentist at least every six months.
Whether you're in need of tooth-coloured fillings, curious about our cosmetic services, or just need to book a regular checkup, give our dental office a call today. Our family-friendly practice helps patients of all ages achieve and maintain a healthier and happier smile and optimal dental health. Our dentists and the entire team look forward to helping you!
