We’ve all been warned of getting a cavity since growing up and to beware that harmful bacteria causes tooth decay.
Acids, starches, and sugars penetrate the tooth and thus a cavity is born. The good news is that a cavity in the beginning stages only causes a breakdown of a small part of the tooth. Many times, a tooth in the very beginning stages of a cavity can repair its own enamel with the help of the patient to practice better preventive measures and better oral hygiene. Cavities & Fillings have different options and types. There are three types of Cavities & Fillings have five.
If there is too much damage, you may need a cavity filling.
Once the bacteria have been removed from the tooth and the affected weak tooth remnants cleared, teeth-colored composite fillings are used to restore the tooth and bring it back to its original shape. Cavity fillings in teeth restore any cracked or misshaped parts of the tooth so that further bacteria cannot enter where additional decays can present themselves. A cavity can be filled with a variety of different composite fillings and can be determined by our team of skilled dentists.
