Protect Your Teeth from Decay
When cavities from decay begin to form in your teeth, it’s important to get fillings as soon as possible! Untreated cavities weaken your teeth and make them more likely to break and chip.
Since the surface of your tooth has been penetrated by decay, cavities can lead to severe infections to the interior of your tooth, which eventually may lead to a root canal. Moon Signature Dentistry offers several options for treating cavities.
Composite resin fillings are our preferred method of treating cavities because the color of your filling matches the natural shade of your tooth, making the filling hard to see.
These tooth-colored fillings make your teeth much stronger. In the past, they were only used for small to mid-sized cavities, but today there are new composite materials that provide strong and reliable restoration, even on molars!
There’s also less drilling required with modern fillings, so more of your natural tooth can be preserved.
