Do you think you have a cavity? Your dentist at Dentistry in Ajax can provide you with fillings to repair your teeth and remove decay.
A cavity is the space inside your tooth once decay is removed. Decay is caused by plaque which is a type of bacteria that forms on your teeth.
Tooth decay happens when the bacteria inside of your mouth creates acids that eat away at your tooth enamel. If you do not see a dentist, this enamel can wear away and expose roots, causing discomfort.
Composite fillings, also known as ‘white fillings’, are made from a synthetic type of material that comes close to the natural colour of your teeth.
A filling may be necessary if you have decay in your teeth or have a cracked tooth. If you do not get your decay removed, and have a filling in that space, you may experience discomfort, or further oral health complications.
At your appointment, Dr. Lam, Dr. Frauts or Dr. Singh will observe your teeth to detect decay and take a digital x-ray.
Your dentist will then apply anesthetic and begin to remove decay.
Then your treatment will finish once the dentist has filled the open space with a filling.
