Dental Care Niagara
Good oral hygiene is crucial in maintaining good oral health. If bacteria from our mouth are not removed daily, they can hide in grooves of our teeth and eventually decay the tooth structure and cause cavities. If untreated, this decay can spread thru the tooth. The dentist removes this decay with the drill and places a restoration (or filling). Fillings are also done when tooth is broken in order to restore its proper form and function.
Traditionally, dentists used silver filling material (so called mercury) for increased strength and durability. With the advancement of technology, tooth colored white filling materials or resin composites have similar strength with added advantage of approved esthetics. At Dental Care Niagara we implement latest technology even during single filling appointment, to restore your broken or decayed teeth to their natural shape and appearance.
