Fillings For All Occasions
The right fillings for the right reasons
Do you think you may have a cavity?
Tooth cavities are permanently damaged areas of the tooth that result in small holes or openings. Often, patients will notice tooth pain or sensitivity and a dark spot on the surface of the tooth. If this is the case, it requires diagnosis and treatment by a dentist.
Fillings are the solution when we catch cavities early!
Dr. Vermet offers patients a natural-looking solution for tooth cavities and decay. White composite fillings adhere to the tooth to strengthen it and restore a natural appearance. If you have an old-fashioned silver filling, it can also be replaced with the newer composite fillings.
Is that cavity causing pain?
One of the biggest reason to catch cavities early and treat them quickly is because cavities can grow and destroy more of your tooth. This can cause a number of problems ranging from bad breath as the bacteria attack your tooth to a toothache and ultimately and infection. Toothaches and the infections that cause them can be exceedingly painful and ultimately may require a root canal.
Root canals aren’t fun for anyone.
A root canal is a treatment recommended for patients who have inflammation or infection in the root of the tooth. During this procedure, the pulp inside the tooth is carefully removed and the space is then cleaned, disinfected, shaped and sealed.
Most common reasons for a root canal include deep decay (also known as cavities), repeated dental procedures on the tooth, faulty crowns or chips and cracks in the tooth.
Do not wait for a toothache!
