There are many oral health problems that can affect your smile, and the risk increases if you have poor oral hygiene habits. When you develop a dental cavity in a very visible area of your smile, you may feel self-conscious about showing off your teeth. Tooth decay on a prominent tooth can often be corrected with a composite resin dental filling that matches the rest of your smile.

Your new dental filling doesn’t have to look obvious in your smile; Monte Vista Dental offers composite material shaded to match your natural tooth enamel and look just like a part of your tooth. First, our dentist eliminates the portions of tooth decay, leaving the tooth enamel clean and healthy and ready to bond with the filling. The hardened dental filling becomes a long-lasting dental restoration that can benefit you for several years.

The quality and longevity of your dental filling depends on the efficacy of your oral hygiene habits. We encourage you to brush twice each day and not skip your daily flossing so that you can control the bacterial presence in your oral cavity and protect the filling from being affected by new tooth decay.
