Come see us to get these benefits that come with tooth fillings.
Preserve Your Tooth
Remove the decay and fill the cavity to protect the remaining structure of your tooth.
Prevent An Infection
When decay persists, it can lead to an infection, which can be painful. A filling stops the decay from continuing and reduces your risk of more decay.
Many people get treatment for cavities when they notice pain or increased sensitivity in that tooth. A filling helps to prevent the pain from persisting.
Avoid Root Canals
You will need a root canal is decay allows bacteria to reach the pulp chamber at the center of your tooth. A filling can keep that from happening.
Restore Your Smile
Composite fillings are made to match that natural color of your teeth. Unlike metal fillings, these fillings restore the appearance of your smile.
