Occasionally, minor tooth decay requires a dental filling in order to restore strength to the tooth and prevent further damage.
Sugars in the foods and drinks we consume provide a boost to certain bacteria in our mouths which feed on the sugar and create acidic conditions. Over time, these acidic conditions in the mouth are what cause tooth decay.
Here at Pier Dental Centre, we always recommend composite fillings as a natural looking treatment for tooth decay. Composite fillings are made of tooth-colored materials and create a less obtrusive solution that blends easily into your smile.
