Dental fillings in NYC are a cavity treatment to restore the health and integrity of the tooth. While cavities are preventable for many people, they can develop due to poor oral hygiene, genetics, diet, and other causes. Dental fillings are used to treat tooth decay, which usually appears when bacteria combine with sugar particles left in your mouth. The result is a substance called plaque that begins to eat away at your tooth’s enamel. This process eventually leads to pits or holes in your teeth that are susceptible to further decay. Once bacteria penetrate your enamel, you may begin to feel pain and are at risk of developing an infection. Dr. Koutsoyiannis offers dental fillings at our New York City office to treat tooth decay and fill cavities.
WHAT ARE DENTAL FILLINGS?
Dental fillings are used to treat cavities, which are permanently damaged areas in the teeth that develop as small holes. Cavities often form from bacteria, excess sugar consumption, and poor oral hygiene. In addition to poor dental hygiene, acid reflux, frequent snacking, and smoking can also contribute to the formation of plaque, tartar, and cavities. Symptoms of a cavity may include sensitivity to cold or sweets, tooth pain, or chewing problems. Routine dental examinations with Dr. John can detect a cavity in its earliest stages so that a more timely treatment can be applied. This can prevent serious and irreversible damage to the tooth from occurring.
The most common material used when performing a dental filling is a composite material. This dental filling material requires less drilling than traditional metal fillings because the material bonds directly to your tooth. Composite cavity fillings are natural-looking and can blend seamlessly with your smile. After the decayed portion of the tooth has been removed, composite material is used to fill this empty space. At Sohosmile®, we use only tooth-colored composite fillings.
