Don’t Let A Cavity Darken Your Holiday Smile! [BLOG]

A cavity won’t care if you’re in the middle of a holiday party or family dinner.

It will develop all the same, and in some cases, bring pain with it.

Our team at Hawkins Complete Dental Service certainly hopes you don’t have to deal with that any time of year, but especially not during the holidays.

However, if you do have a cavity, you can count on our team in Zanesville, OH for fast pain relief and a same-day solution so you can preserve your oral health and your white, bright holiday smile with a tooth-colored filling!

A Cavity Can Darken Your Holiday Smile

We’re all susceptible to tooth decay and cavities.

That’s because with everything you eat and drink, you’re taking in sugar in one form or another, and that’s what feeds harmful bacteria in your mouth.

Once that happens, it secretes erosive acids that eat away at your enamel, and if given enough time, will leave a hole behind called a cavity.

Without treatment, the cavity can and will get worse, likely leading to an infection that will either need a root canal or an extraction. Letting us treat the cavity while it’s small is the only way to keep that from happening!

Keep Your Smile Bright With Tooth-Colored Fillings!

When you visit Hawkins Complete Dental Service every six months for comprehensive cleanings and exams, it’s less likely you’ll be walking around with a serious developing dental problem.

That’s because our technology and experience help us catch tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease at the earliest stages so we can take care of it at the start.

We also offer fluoride treatments and dental sealants to prevent decay and cavities.

It’s part of our proactive approach to your dental wellness, but even if a problem develops in between your routine visits, we can handle it quickly, efficiently, and discreetly.

If you have a cavity, you don’t have to let it darken your holiday smile, thanks to our tooth-colored fillings!

Dr. Hawkins will remove the decay and fill the area with a composite material that matches your tooth’s natural color. You won’t have to stress about a dark metal filling disrupting your smile!

Another advantage of a composite filling is how conservative a solution it is, since we don’t have to remove as much of your natural tooth to prepare it. Tooth-colored fillings are also used for their strength and durability, made to last so your teeth and gums stay healthy.
