The teeth in the front of your mouth play an important role in not only serving to bite off pieces of the foods you want to eat, they are also overtly presented in your smile. When a small cavity, chip, or other physical defect appears on one of these teeth it can leave you feeling socially awkward, and cause you to unconsciously guard your smile.
If you have a tooth like this, the wisest course of action is to have it examined by the oral care specialists at Evans Street Dental Center’s dental clinic in McMinnville, Oregon. Without professional attention, even a minor defect with a tooth can exacerbate into a more significant problem.
If the cavity of a physical defect is limited to the tooth’s enamel layer, Dr. Natalya Ramsay might be able to repair it with a composite dental filling. This is a special type of dental resin that can be color matched to appear just like the surrounding tooth enamel.
Installing the dental filling calls for Dr. Natalya Ramsay to numb the tooth and surrounding gum tissues. This typically come in the form of an injection of Novocain or another form of procaine. With your comfort ensured she will remove any compromised tooth enamel and prepare a surface capable of bonding the dental filling.
Once the composite resin has been shaded and installed into the prepared area she will cure and harden it with a special ultraviolet light. This will create a lasting bond with the tooth enamel and effectively repair the tooth for many years to come.
If you have a cavity on one of your front teeth, and you live in the McMinnville, Oregon, area, you should call 503-472-1402 to see timely treatment and repair at Evans Street Dental Center.
