A white and attractive smile can certainly help bolster your sense of self-confidence. When a cavity starts to develop on one of your front teeth it can alter its appearance while also causing worsening discomfort.

Fortunately, Dr. Danton Bradshaw can often repair a cavity on a front tooth with a composite dental filling. This is a special type of dental grade resin that can eventually be shaded to perfectly match the surrounding tooth enamel. This will make it indistinguishable from the rest of healthy tooth.

Dr. Bradshaw will start the treatment process by numbing the tooth. Then he will use a special dental drill to remove all traces of compromised tooth enamel. This will also create a smooth surface to bond the dental filling. The material he recommends will be based on the tooth’s visibility in your smile and its basic function. Once your dentist has shaded and applied the composite resin material he will use a special ultraviolet light to harden it. This will effectively bond the new dental filling to the surrounding tooth enamel.

If you live in the Bellevue, Idaho, area and you have noticed a cavity on one of your front teeth, you should call 208-788-2006 to have it examined and treated by the dental specialists at Snowy River Dental’s clinic.
