Filling cavities to prevent infection
Shallow cavities may be filled using white filling material either of dental composite or ceramics. We are able to replace old metal amalgam fillings that may contain mercury with new white fillings that are safer for health and aesthetically pleasing.
Cavities may form in teeth from tooth wear, dental erosion and tooth decay. Eating foods high in sugar or acid content increases the acid level of our saliva that causes enamel erosion. A fissure sealant may help to protect teeth from decay as may professional teeth cleaning.
Having teeth checked every six months by a dentist will help identify cavities before they develop. The earlier a cavity is treated with a white filling the better to prevent infection and damage to the tooth.
Closing irregularly spaced teeth
Sometimes teeth have spaces between them, not from tooth loss but from dental misalignment or diastema. Front teeth are often affected by diastema and the gap is easily closed using white dental composite or porcelain veneers.
Strengthening damaged teeth
Ceramic fillings or inlays give damaged teeth a boost in strength and look. Teeth may be repaired or reshaped using dental composite and resin bonding, or porcelain ceramics for a fine restoration. Run down teeth affect health and are easily treated with affordable solutions at our practice.
