Dental Fillings

When a tooth has a "cavity" it means that some of the tooth structure has been made soft by acid producing bacteria on the tooth. If this occurs, the tooth structure that is soft must be removed leaving a "cavity." This hole is filled up with restorative material. Most of these areas are encouraged to be filled with a tooth colored material called composite. This material is long lasting, along with being very natural looking. There is often a possibility of having the option of placing porcelain or gold in these cavities, providing an even longer lasting restoration. This are called inlays. Traditional silver fillings (amalgams) are still requested from some patients. Dr. Perkins enjoys providing all of these services to his patients.
