The best dental filling is no filling! Unfortunately, tooth decay is a very common dental problem. Tooth decay is initiated by plaque, a sticky bacteria film, that constantly forms on the teeth. The bacteria in plaque produce acid and decay begins with the destruction of the hard, outer layer of the tooth called enamel. This is when cavities form. If left untreated, the decay reaches deeper layers of the tooth and ultimately affects the nerves of the tooth which is when one experiences pain.
Dental decay is treated by removal of decay and replacing missing tooth structure by restoration or ‘filling’ to help stop the spread and restore strength of your original tooth. We use tooth coloured material called composite resin that is strong, safe and provides a natural look.
