Tooth Colored Fillings

Fillings are necessary if a cavity has developed in a tooth and decay has begun to occur. If decay is allowed to spread it can lead to more severe problems, including bone loss. Getting a filling to repair decay can prevent you from later needing crowns, root canal treatment, or tooth extraction.

A local anesthetic is given, decayed areas of the tooth are removed, and a composite resin filling is put in the decay's place. Composite Resin can be bonded to the tooth in layers, allowing the dentist to preserve more of your natural tooth. It is also comparatively inexpensive, and is tooth-colored and less noticeable than metal fillings.

Tooth Care Tips

The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends visits to the dentist twice a year, or once every six months for a professional exam and cleaning. Taking care of your teeth is the key to a healthy, beautiful smile. Here are some tips to help keep your teeth and gums healthy.

There are four basic steps to caring for teeth and gums:

1. Brushing - Brush at least twice a day. Replace your toothbrush every three or four months, especially if the bristles become worn.

2. Flossing - Floss at least once a day. Flossing gets rid of food and plaque between the teeth, where your toothbrush cannot reach.

3. Eating Right - Avoid snacking on sugary foods which can lead to tooth decay.

4. Visiting The Dentist - Visit your dentist regularly for professional cleanings and oral exams
