No one feels excited about discovering that they have a cavity—but before you go and get all upset about getting a filling, let us tell you a little bit about how the team at Joseph Cochran, DDS deals with dental decay. We never place ugly, unhealthy amalgam restorations. Not only do they look terrible in your smile and let everyone count your fillings when you laugh, but they can also damage your teeth as they shift with temperature changes, contain mercury, and often, harbor bacteria under the filling. That’s why we use only beautiful, biocompatible, tooth-colored composite fillings to fill and repair cavities of all sizes.
Tooth-colored fillings are made of the same material we use for cosmetic bonding, so you can count on the attractiveness of your restoration. Kids and adults alike love that no one can notice that they have ever had a cavity fixed, and we love that our patients’ health is protected.
