Stop Decay with a Dental Filling
Cavities are decayed areas of your teeth that turn into tiny openings or holes. To keep your mouth healthy and avoid more invasive procedures (like a root canal), it’s important to stop decay with a dental filling.
We offer white fillings to restore your tooth back to its normal function and shape while maintaining the natural look of your beautiful smile.
If your decay has spread deep into the tooth, a more advanced treatment alternative may be recommended, such as a crown or tooth canal.
