Finding cavities is like finding termites in your house. At first you don’t notice them, but by the time we find out, something’s hurting and now we’ve got a bigger problem. The best thing to do is get them out soon before they keep eating until there’s no house left! We will start by numbing up the tooth. Once your tooth has fallen asleep, we clean up the decay and select a shade for the filling that matches your tooth, restoring it back to its natural shape. A final polish and bite check and we’re done! Fillings are great to restore teeth, but white fillings can sometimes also be done for cosmetic reasons, such as changing the shape or shade of your teeth.
