I love going to Dr. Dharia! She is very thorough; she explains the procedure and everything in detail. I have never been to the dentist like her before because she genuinely takes time to explain everything on X-rays and take teeth pictures and show it! Great experience and personality! Highly recommend people out there to go with her! Also, the location has great views and that a plus!
Based on statistics, you are likely to have a cavity if you haven’t already had one. When that time comes, you will want to get a dental filling.
1. Tooth Decay
As we noted above, most people get cavities. In fact, national health officials estimate that more than 90 percent of the population will experience tooth decay. When this happens, a filling can stop the cavity from getting worse.
After you have had a cavity, the affected tooth is weaker. A filling helps to provide protection against a new cavity from developing in that same tooth.
3. Worn-Out Fillings
Over time, fillings do wear down, crack, and even fall out. If you have metal filling, this is a good opportunity to replaced them with a filling that matches the natural color of your smile.
