A cavity is something that Dr. Dipika Shah, DDS hopes her patients never encounter. Though they are common, a cavity is a hole in the tooth that develops from dental decay. Tooth decay occurs because oral care habits are lacking or nonexistent and poor choice of diet. Dr. Dipika Shah, DDS is happy to give patients a refresher in oral care if they need one, otherwise, down the road, you may need to discuss filling options.
At her dental practice, Dr. Dipika Shah, DDS utilizes tooth-colored fillings. This is because tooth-colored fillings resemble the appearance of a natural tooth and blend-in well with the rest of the teeth. Composite resins such as these conserve the tooth and provide more support than metal fillings. They are also a safer alternative to maintaining a healthy smile.
