Hello, Carlsbad friends of La Costa Dental Excellence! Teeth take a lot of tender loving care. And even when we do our best to practice daily dental hygiene, bacteria can still sneak in and cause decay – the common cold of oral health. At La Costa Dental Excellence, we have been filling cavities for years and would be happy to take care of any cavities or other dental problems you are experiencing.
Few individuals go their entire life without getting a cavity. Unfortunately for some children, a cavity is the first health problem they experience in childhood.
Cavities are caused when bacteria, acid, food debris, and saliva combine to form plaque.
Plaque then clings to your teeth and the acid in the plaque starts to dissolve the enamel. The result is a hole in your tooth which can also be accompanied by pain.
Because of how quick and effective dental fillings are, they are one of the best options to fix a cavity. At La Costa Dental Excellence, Drs. Dankworth uses top-of-the-line instruments to examine the size and severity of the cavity and then determine exactly what type of filling is required. We offer white fillings that are as durable as conventional metal fillings and match your teeth specifically.
Once a decision is made on what filling you’ll need, Drs. Dankworth will perform the necessary preparations for the procedure. When a filling is completed the right way, it can last for decades! That’s why we are certain the procedure is done with precision.
A filling isn’t a “set it and forget it” treatment. A tooth that has received a filling still needs to be properly cared for because decay can occur in the surrounding tooth structure if bacteria is allowed to flourish.
Checkups are a key part of caring for your teeth and there’s no better place to receive checkups than at La Costa Dental Excellence. We have a comfortable, state-of-the-art office and a friendly, professional staff! That’s why so many individuals in Carlsbad have trusted us with their teeth since 1988.
