Sometimes bacteria can cause cavities to form on your teeth. We’ll fill your cavities and return a healthy smile to your face. How do cavities occur? Germs on your teeth and gums interact with carbs and sugar from food, creating an acidic environment that “decays” the protective enamel on the outer layers of your teeth. That tooth decay will spread if not filled.
We fill cavities with something called a composite, a white or tooth-coloured filling. The composites are made from materials that are aesthetically pleasing and protect your tooth. The filling looks and functions just like a healthy, strong tooth.
We’d just as soon you avoid tooth decay all together, so practice healthy oral hygiene at home by brushing and flossing daily. And come in for regular check-ups (standard regimen is twice a year) for cleaning and routine examinations.
