It can be frustrating to learn you have a cavity, especially if you diligently brush and floss your teeth. Unfortunately, that’s the sneaky nature of cavities. Despite your near-perfect oral hygiene, they sometimes have a way of creeping up in your smile. The good news is that addressing cavities is easy, inexpensive, and fast.
Lone Star Smiles in Lubbock, Texas, uses composite fillings — colored like natural teeth — to fix cavities while maintaining the natural appearance of the teeth. Besides beauty, our tooth-colored fillings placed by Dr. Cole Sutak are non-toxic, preserving your oral and overall health.
When a cavity forms, it can’t heal on its own. Again, ignoring the cavity isn’t an option because it progresses, causing further damage that could cost you a tooth. When you or the dentist notice a cavity, it should be addressed immediately before it grows deeper.
Addressing a cavity is straightforward, but you should ensure you pick the right filling material to preserve your aesthetics and oral health.
Following are the different types of tooth fillings:
All tooth fillings are created the same — however, some are durable but don’t look beautiful and carry safety concerns. Lone Star Smiles uses composite restorations to deliver safe and cosmetically appealing results.
