Happy holidays! With the coming of a festive season, now is a great time to visit your dentist to set plans in place to ensure your oral health care has the best chance of success. However, cavities as always remains a giant risk to the health and condition of your teeth. If you should suffer a cavity during the holiday season, you’re welcome to come in for a safe and effective dental filling treatment.

It is important to always care for your teeth on a daily basis to keep them clean from hazards that can lead to cavities. Ideally, you should eat a balanced diet, visit your dentist for routine checkup and examinations, and brush and floss your teeth daily. However, if a cavity arises, a composite filling will be needed.

Composite fillings are extremely effective and durable. A single dental composite has been known to last up to a decade before it needs to be repaired or replaced. Fortunately, they can be repaired and replaced without removing the original filling. In addition, composite fillings are also known as tooth-colored composites, because they can be matched to mimic the natural look and color of teeth.

If you would like to book an exam for a dental filling treatment with Dr. Mark Jensen and the rest of our team at Truman Village Family Dental, you are welcome to call our dentist office at 816-569-9800 for an appointment in Independence, Missouri.
