Composite fillings, which are made from tooth-colored materials, give your new filling a real, natural look.
Getting a filling is an essential part of dental care. What's more essential is having a beautiful, confident smile. That's why we use composite fillings. The most common treatment for cavities is white tooth-colored fillings or resins. During a filling, the decayed portion of the tooth is drilled away and replaced with a filling made of a variety of materials that are durable and blend in to look as though there's no filling at all.
Simply put, a dental cavity is a hole in your tooth as a result of decay. Tooth enamel is slowly worn down by exposure to acidic food and drink, which allows built up plaque to make its way farther into the tooth, creating a hole that we call a cavity (or caries).
The most common symptom we see is a slowly growing pain or discomfort. This discomfort may increase with changes in fluid temperatures or eating sweet or sticky foods. If decay is allowed to progress, it may result in visible black spots on the surface of the tooth, however, a large number of cavities occur between the teeth and are invisible to the naked eye.
