DENTAL FILLING BASICS
When we use fillings
When you have a cavity, or a tooth is affected by some degree of decay, a filling can often be a reliable fix. If a filling is needed, your dentist will remove the decayed material from your tooth. After cleaning the area thoroughly, a filling material will be inserted to provide a seal. Once this hardens, it forms a sturdy barrier that prevents bacteria from gathering in the cavity. This will protect your tooth and ensure further decay does not take place.
If you are in need of fillings for a cavity or would like to get a consultation on what options would be best for you. Please give our conveniently located Houston office a call at 713-722-8400 or use the form to the right to request an appointment today!
