Tooth decay is never a laughing matter. Once it forms on a tooth, a cavity can spread to cause more and more serious complications. It can be even more of a concern if the cavity is on a tooth that appears in your smile. If you notice a problem with a tooth, you shouldn’t delay in seeking treatment at Kurt A. Seidler DDS.

Dr. Kurt Seidler will need to examine to tooth. This will likely include taking some X-rays to make sure the decay hasn’t reached the sensitive internal structures of the tooth. Dr. Kurt Seidler will then use a drill to carefully remove all traces of tooth decay. The material he recommends for the new filling will be based on the tooth’s location and its prevalence in your smile.

Amalgam fillings are typically dark in color, making them a poor choice to repair a cavity that appears in your smile. In a situation like this, composite fillings are a better choice. They are made from a special dental resin that can be perfectly shaded to match the surrounding tooth enamel. This often makes them the superior choice for repairing a cavity that has formed in a visible area of your smile.

After applying the filling, Dr. Kurt Seidler will use a dental-grade ultraviolet light to harden it and secure the bond with the surrounding tooth enamel.
