Cavities are a result of tooth decay, which can affect both the outer coating of a tooth (the enamel) as well as the inner layer of a tooth (the dentin).
Cavities are caused by food debris that has accumulated on the tooth’s surface, which creates acid that gradually erodes the tooth and causes extreme pain and discomfort.
To treat your cavity, Dr. Quasha and team will remove the decaying area of the tooth and then “fill” it with a strong, durable material such as porcelain.
Tooth Filling Procedure
Cavities, however, are not the only reason people receive composite fillings. Cracked, broken or worn teeth are also responsible for many of the dental fillings that are performed at Quasha Family Dentistry.
Are you nervous about the appearance of your tooth fillings? Don’t be. At Quasha Family Dentistry we use composite fillings that match the color of your teeth, which makes them perfect for any area, even if it’s highly visible.
