Fillings are a common practice for cavity repair, and West Somerville Dental Associates has years of experience with this basic procedure. Fillings aren’t just placed inside of a cavity contrary to common belief. Instead, cavity repair is started when fillings are inserted after the dentist removes all damaged sections of your teeth and cleans out the decayed area. After the decayed sections are taken care of, a clean cavity is left behind in your tooth which is then replaced with a filling to prevent future damage.

This cavity repair procedure ensures that we remove the damaged sections so that the tooth is no longer at risk of getting worse. Remember this one tip: your tooth will never regrow, and fillings won’t prevent future decay if you don’t take proper care of your teeth. So, while fillings are an excellent solution to repair the current damage, you must take care of your teeth or else you’ll need larger and larger fillings.

Cavity Repair With Fillings You Won’t Even Know are There

At West Somerville Dental Associates in Sommerville, MA, we understand that getting a cavity is an unpleasant experience. It may be painful, damaging, or just simply an unpleasant experience to go through. Our point of view is that it’s bad enough to go through it, so why should you have to stare at a filling after the procedure is over?

A lot of locations use gold or silver fillings, and while they do work very well, they are very noticeable. That’s why we took it a step further for you. We offer teeth-colored fillings, which are as close as we possibly can get to making a filling invisible. The filling matches your tooth color and isn’t jarringly obvious whenever you open your mouth. After all, you go to the dentist to get a better smile, so why should you settle for less than perfect?

If you have a cavity that needs filling, don’t hesitate to call us or schedule on our site. A new smile that no one knows you have fillings in is just a few steps away.
