When too much bacteria builds up in your mouth, it results in tooth decay. As decay spreads through your teeth, it leaves hollow spaces in the enamel called cavities. Without treatment, cavities can lead to additional oral infections and tooth loss.
If you have a cavity, Dr. Grubb can revitalize your tooth with a composite filling. Learn how you can benefit from this highly convenient treatment.
Until recently, most dentists used amalgam fillings to treat cavities. However, their noticeable appearance is a disadvantage and many patients have become concerned that amalgam fillings contain mercury.
For your safety and convenience, we only use composite fillings at our practice. Made from a durable, tooth-colored resin, these fillings are customized to blend in seamlessly with your smile.
Composite fillings offer several unique benefits, some of which include:
Dr. Grubb will fill the area with a tooth-colored filling that’s crafted to blend in with your natural teeth. He’ll finish up by buffing the surface to ensure a smooth and seamlessly beautiful tooth restoration.
If you feel pain or sensitivity in your tooth, or if you notice any discoloration, this could indicate that you have a cavity. Call (410) 939-5800 or fill out our convenient appointment form to schedule a consultation with Dr. Grubb.
By protecting your tooth with a composite filling, he can help you achieve a natural appearance that will last for many years to come.
