Dental restorations need to be done when you have holes (cavities) in your teeth, caused by bacteria on the tooth surface and general wear of the tooth. This causes pain and sensitivity with hot or cold foods and fluids.
One thing we know for sure, is that if tooth decay is left, it only gets larger and deeper, causing more problems and leading to more invasive treatments, such as Root Canal Treatment or extraction of the tooth. Prevention is always better than the cure and certainly less painful on the pocket.
Here at CoastWide Smiles, our gentle dentists are very experienced in doing restorations for our community, to restore teeth back to their usual shape and function and relieving pain and sensitivity the cavity has been causing.
We use tooth coloured materials to match your existing teeth colour and your dentist will go over and explain the treatment to you and answer any questions you may have.
We do not place Amalgam (mercury) fillings at this Practice.
