Fillings

Fillings

We understand that hearing that you have a cavity can be scary - but you're not alone. More than 90 percent of adults have had a cavity. While regular brushing and flossing and regular dental exams and cleanings can help reduce your risk of developing cavities, sometimes cavities can develop despite your best efforts to keep your teeth healthy. 

Some reasons cavities can develop include: 

Oral hygiene issues
Genetics
Chronic illness
Use of some medications
Poor diet
Behavioral habits 
Recreational drug use

However, no matter the cause of your cavity, we are here to help.

Cavities, mild tooth decay and other minor damage can often be repaired with dental fillings. Dr. DuBois offers patients composite (tooth-colored) fillings, so you can rest assured that your restorations will match the rest of your smile. Composite fillings are a stronger and healthier choice than metal amalgam fillings. Our fillings are durable and resemble your natural enamel, which means they look and function like regular enamel. This has addition benefits including stain resistance, easier on opposing teeth than metal fillings and also allow us to preserve more of your tooth's enamel compared to silver dental fillings. 

Another benefit of using composite, tooth-colored fillings is that they are non-toxic. For many years, researchers, dentists and patients alike have expressed concerns over the toxicity of mercury silver dental fillings. 

Other benefits of tooth-colored fillings include: 

A better bond with your tooth enamel, which means more durable restoration in the long run
No need for anchors to attach fillings to your teeth, which leaves your teeth stronger in the longer run
Better aesthetics, leaving your fillings virtually undetectable
