It is not uncommon to develop tooth decay, also known as a cavity, when harmful bacteria living in your mouth begin eating away at your tooth. Once breakdown occurs, it is necessary to remove the damaged and affected area to prevent further problems and toothaches. With decay removed, a composite filling will be placed, offering a healthy and more natural appearance. We can correctly match the composite shade to the specific color of your existing tooth, making the filling unnoticeable to the naked eye. Composite fillings are strong, durable, and offer a great method to prevent future dental decay if maintained properly. It is important to take care of tooth decay when it begins in order to avoid further problems such as root canals or tooth loss.
