Our Friendswood Dental Practice Treats Cavities
Crush Cavities with Tooth-Colored Dental Fillings
Dr. Montz and his team provide tooth-colored fillings in the Friendswood and Pearland areas to patients who need to reverse dental decay. Tooth-colored fillings are made from biocompatible composite resin materials, which are safe and non-irritating for the patient. This strong plastic material can be designed to match the bright color of your smile while restoring your decayed or damaged teeth.
What is a cavity?
A dental cavity is a small hole in the tooth structure that results from decay. When bacteria and food particles build up and form plaque, plaque acids begin to dissolve the important natural enamel of the teeth. Cavities are common, and they can be easily treated with attractive tooth-colored fillings.
Can I Avoid Cavities?
Maintaining vigilant oral hygiene is the best thing you can do to prevent dental cavities. Brush, floss, and rinse your teeth frequently to eliminate harmful bacteria. See your general dentist, Dr. Montz, frequently for protective checkups and examinations.
Unfortunately, most patients do experience a cavity at least once in the course of a lifetime. If you stay on top of your regular dental examinations, Dr. Montz will be able to identify the cavity immediately and quickly treat you with white fillings. If decay becomes worse, and dental fillings are no longer an option, more intensive dental work must be completed to prevent tooth loss and tooth pain.
Will White Fillings Save My Teeth?
Yes, white fillings can save your teeth from progressive decay. Our durable dental fillings will fortify your natural teeth against infection, weakening, cracks, and breaks.
We call our dental fillings white fillings, or tooth-colored fillings, because they are carefully designed to perfectly match your natural smile. Tooth-colored fillings are not made of metal, so no one besides your dentist will be able to detect your dental work. Our tooth-colored fillings also support the remaining tooth structure, insulating the tooth against temperature sensitivity and preventing potential breakage.
