FILLINGS

Dental x-ray

Nearly everyone gets cavities and will eventually need a filling, no matter how well they brush and floss.  Genetics, diet, environment, and other risk factors all contribute to tooth decay– which over 95% of Americans will experience at some point in their life. We focus on reducing the damage done by tooth decay through early detection, and quick follow up with a safe, minimally invasive tooth colored composite filling. Minimally invasive techniques save more tooth structure than traditional fillings.
