We utilize a tooth-colored material (composite resin) to restore decayed teeth back to form and function. We no longer use silver amalgam for fillings-restorations.
Our practice is highly prevention-oriented. Our philosophy is to help our patients avoid dental decay through education on good hygiene and diet counseling. We also promote the use of products that help decrease decay. Dental restorations are required when tooth decay has caused a cavity to form on a tooth surface. This cavity may progress to a more severe problem, such as a root canal, if left untreated.
