Hello Owensboro friends of Thompson & Frey Cosmetic & Family Dentistry! 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 tooth decay – the common cold of oral health. At Thompson & Frey Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, we have been filling cavities for years and would be happy to take care of any cavities or other dental troubles 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 go through 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 correct a cavity. At Thompson & Frey Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, we use top-of-the-line instruments to examine the size and severity of the cavity and then establish exactly what type of filling is needed. We offer white fillings that are as durable as conventional metal fillings and match your teeth perfectly.
Once a decision is made on what filling you’ll need, we will carry out the required preparations for the procedure. When a filling is performed the right way, it can last for decades! That’s why we make sure the process is done with accuracy.
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 tooth decay can occur in the surrounding tooth structure if bacteria is allowed to flourish.
Checkups are an essential part of caring for your teeth and there’s no better place to receive checkups than at Thompson & Frey Cosmetic & Family Dentistry. We have a comfortable, state-of-the-art office and a friendly, professional staff! That’s why so many individuals in Owensboro have trusted us with their teeth since 1986.
