Restorative Dentist Aberdeen
Tooth Colored Fillings
Harmful bacteria on the tooth can lead to decay. Our dentist can remove the unhealthy decay and fill the heathy tooth structure. Tooth colored fillings are made out of porcelain or composite resin, which is undetectable and offers an aesthetically pleasing solution for a decayed tooth. This protects the tooth from infection and further decay.
When cavities are left untreated, tooth decay can often cause pain and discomfort, which can lead to infection. The cavity-infected tooth may eventually require a root canal or extraction.
At our dental office, we do not use silver fillings that contain mercury. Exposure to these fillings may cause other health problems.
You can decrease your risk of cavities and other dental diseases by:
- Brushing your teeth twice a day
- Flossing daily
- Keeping up with regular professional oral hygiene routine
