Our office is always stocked with the latest in dental technology, giving you the most accurate test results as possible. Cavities are caused by buildup of food and debris that cause bacteria to form plaque and tartar over the teeth, resulting in tooth decay. Fillings can fill cavities that form in teeth.
Cavities can be treated using fillings, which are made from safe composite materials and which fill the holes created. Cavities can be prevented by brushing and flossing daily and following a good oral health care regimen. Often, children suffer from cavities since habits such as bottle drinking can contribute to sugars that get into the teeth. Our fillings are made from quality composite materials, which match the teeth very well and naturally. We also provide cosmetic services like veneers, which are porcelain shells placed over the teeth to straighten and whiten them.
Our Parkland dentist also specializes in other forms of dentistry such as cosmetic, general and restorative. Restorative dentistry helps to prevent oral diseases, while cosmetic dentistry involves replacing missing teeth with implants or dentures, or whitening and veneers. We urge patients to come in once a year for their cleaning so that their teeth stay healthy & clean. Our dentist, Dr. Shin, is a recipient of the prized Fellowship Award from the AGD.
