We all hate to hear that our dentist has found new cavities since our last visit. Even worse, some cavities create pain that we can do little to relieve. Fillings are among the most frequently prescribed and versatile of all dental restorations. In a procedure known as a cavity preparation, we use dental instruments to remove tooth decay. Shelton Dental Center can replace the missing tooth structure with traditional amalgam fillings or newer composite white fillings.
If you have small cavities, get them filled as soon as possible, before they grow and cause extensive damage. We’ll gladly help you understand the uniqueness of your mouth and recommend ways to prevent bacteria and tooth decay. We want to give you a small town welcome – and a reason to smile!
