Will my composite filling be noticeable?
The composite filling materials used in our Nederland, TX dental office blend seamlessly into your smile. The materials, in fact, are colored and shaped to match your surrounding teeth. No one will know you even have a new filling.
Further, a composite filling will make a damaged tooth look even better than it did before your cavity, and the material helps to strengthen that tooth and keep it viable.
Cavities are holes in teeth brought by decay or bacteria. Unfortunately, even adults get cavities sometimes. The important thing is to see our dentist at the first signs of pain or tooth sensitivity. Timely care prevents deeper cavities that may require a root canal.
Our dentist recommends brushing and flossing twice per day, scheduling and keeping regular dental appointments, and having professional dental cleanings at least twice per year.
It’s also important to avoid sugary drinks and sweets that have been shown to cause cavities in both adults and children.
