Cavity Fillings Raleigh, NC
Protect your teeth against further decay.
When cavities or tooth decay forms on your teeth, it is important to treat the problem with fillings as soon as possible. Untreated cavities compromise the strength of your teeth, making chips and severe breaks much more likely. Additionally, once the decay penetrates the surface of the tooth, cavities can lead to severe infections to the interior of your tooth, which eventually may lead to a root canal. To avoid this, get regular checkups so we can catch small cavities before they become big ones!
With advancements in dental materials, cavity fillings have come a long way. Now, we can repair your teeth with composite, tooth-colored fillings. This composite resin material allows us to match the color of the filling to the natural shade of the tooth, making them practically indistinguishable from the real thing! We simply apply this material to the prepared tooth, then “cure” it with a special light to harden it into place, completing the process.
As a restoration, composite fillings provide the strength and reinforcement your tooth needs, while also allowing you to maintain the natural aesthetics of your smile!
