If you have cavities or tooth decay, we can use fillings to restore your natural tooth. Fillings can reshape the tooth after decay removal, provide structure and support, and prevent bacteria from collecting in the area in the future. As the name suggests, our tooth-colored fillings also blend in with the shade of your natural teeth so most people won’t even be able to tell that they’re there.
During your visit at Menomonie Dental, Dr. Barnes will examine the surface of your tooth after decay removal to see if you have a cavity that needs to be filled. It depends on the extent of the damage, but usually, any amount of tooth decay will require at least a small filling to keep bacteria from re-entering the area and preserve the tooth’s appearance. If you have a cavity, chances are that you’re a great candidate for our tooth-colored fillings.
