Save Your Smile From Bigger Dental Problems
Though preventable, tooth decay affects millions of people in the United States, and is the most common chronic health condition among both adults and children. However prevalent this oral disease may be, treating dental cavities caused by tooth decay now helps avoid the need for future, more extensive dental procedures such as root canals, crowns and tooth extractions. Protect your family’s smiles and oral health by seeking immediate treatment for cavities with conservative tooth-colored composite fillings from Dr. David Kimmel.
Dr. Kimmel Talks About Preventative Dentistry
How Is a Cavity Treated?
Cavities are caused by certain types of oral bacteria residing in your mouth. When these bacteria consume sugars in plaque deposits they produce acid, which creates an opening or “cavity” within your tooth. Dr. Kimmel often treats tooth decay by cleaning out the cavity with a gentle dental laser, and then restoring the tooth with natural-looking, non-metal composite filling material for a seamless, healthy smile.
Benefits of composite fillings include:
Shaded to match exact tooth color
Blend seamlessly anywhere in the mouth
Look, feel and act like natural tooth structure
Require less removal of tooth structure
Smooth, strong, durable and lasting
Fully restore function and esthetics after tooth decay
