Fillings -Tooth Colored
When bacteria sits on teeth, it tends to wreak havoc on the protective layers of our teeth. As bacteria grows and multiplies it emits acids. These dangerous acids sit on the enamel layer of your teeth and destroy it. If not removed, it will continue to eat away your teeth. If the cavity (bacteria) is caught early enough, it can be removed by your dentist. When bacteria is removed the area of contamination will be cleaned, prepped and then filled with a tooth colored filling.

Modern Dental Care does NOT use the controversial metal or “Amalgam” fillings. Often these fillings are made of metal alloys thus having the same properties of metal. They expand and contract with hot and cold temperatures. When a metal filling expands and contracts thousands and thousands of times during it’s lifetime (think of how many times you eat hot and cold), they tend to act as a wedge and break the tooth. A filling is designed to seal a tooth and to eliminate bacteria from entering it. The constant expanding and contracting usually breaks the seal between the filling and the tooth. Bacteria then enters through the broken seal and can easily enter the nerve chamber of your tooth. Having regular check ups every 6 months will allow your Dentist to catch any tooth decay early and in some cases the decay can be reversed if caught early enough.
