The teeth in the front of your mouth are often visible when you smile. When a cavity develops on one of these teeth, it can be unsightly. Some people who suffer from tooth decay on a front tooth also complain of heightened sensitivity when biting into certain foods. If you have been experiencing a problem with one of your teeth, you should consider having it examined by our dentist, Dr. Robert A. Bell. With a timely diagnosis he might be able to treat the area of tooth decay by installing a dental filling.
During the procedure, the dentist will remove the decayed tooth material, before applying the filling. This will effectively restore the structural integrity of the tooth while also sealing the surface against bacteria and possible infection. For a tooth that will appears in your smile the dentist might use composite resin. This special material can closely mimic the appearance of natural tooth enamel. This makes the filling very difficult for others to see. In the future, you might want to make a concentrated effort to remember to brush your teeth each morning and night and to floss at least once per day.
