How do we get cavities?
The outside covering of our teeth, called the enamel, is made of mineral salts like Calcium.
Certain types of bacteria attach themselves to the enamel. Unless they're washed away, the
bacteria start building up in numbers. They mix with saliva and food to form plaque,
which produces acid. The mineral salts dissolve under this acid attack, making the enamel porous.
Over time this causes holes (or cavities) in our teeth.
Don't let metal fillings spoil your looks!
Dental cavities have traditionally been filled using different types of metals.
Metal fillings can easily ruin an otherwise perfect smile. However, there have been rapid
advancements in dental technology and materials.
At Greenway Smiles you have the option of getting composite fillings (also known as white fillings).
These fillings are made from tooth colored materials such as ceramic compounds.
Composite fillings blend with the teeth. They restore the natural look of your teeth, helping
you retain that sparkle in your smile.
