The contours of your teeth can sometimes trap stray food particles and plaque buildup. If these bacterial deposits are not removed by your daily oral hygiene routine, they could increase your chances of suffering a cavity on one of your teeth.
Early symptoms of tooth decay develop could include discomfort and increased sensitivity in the compromised tooth. In some of these cases, it can also cause a slight change in texture or discoloration.
If you have noticed something abnormal with one of your teeth you should have it professionally diagnosed and treated by a dentist like Dr. Hang Truong or Dr. Asma Sajid. With early detection, a small cavity might be treated by applying a simple dental filling.
The treatment process starts with our dentist numbing the tooth and removing any traces of decayed tooth enamel. The process will also prepare the necessary surface texture to anchor the dental filling material.
If the treated area will appear when you smile our dentist might use a composite dental filling which can be shaded to match the tooth’s natural enamel. Once it has been cured and bonded by an ultraviolet light the composite dental filling will seamlessly match with the rest of the tooth.
