Carmelite Dental Practice
Harmful acid producing bacteria in your mouth can dissolve the enamel that protect your teeth and give you tooth decay or a cavity.
You can prevent decay by having a good oral hygiene and by reducing your sugar intake. Sometimes the cavity becomes too big and will require filling out to prevent tooth loss.
Fillings can be made from different materials, amalgam (silver filling) or you can opt for white fillings that are the same colour as you teeth and therefore much more aesthetically pleasing. White fillings can be made of different materials ,for example composite or porcelain.
