Bacteria, poor hygiene, snacking, and diet can lead to tooth damage that cannot be reversed. Cavities can enlarge and spread and must be treated and filled.
Once a cavity has been identified, Dr. Murphy will first remove the decayed area of the tooth, and then use a composite/tooth colored material to “fill” the area that was previously decayed. Composite fillings look like your natural teeth, allowing the repair on small to medium sized areas of decay to remain discreet. Patient comfort is a top priority. Dr. Murphy utilizes top quality equipment and techniques to ensure patients our relaxed and comfortable during the filling.
