Hello Phoenix friends of Harris Dental! 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 Harris Dental, we have been filling cavities for years and would be happy to take care of any cavities or other dental problems 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 experience 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 Harris Dental, Dr. Harris uses top-of-the-line instruments to examine the size and severity of the cavity and then identify exactly what type of filling is required. We offer white fillings that are as durable as old-school metal fillings and match your teeth precisely.
Once a decision is made on what filling you’ll need, Dr. Harris will carry out the required preparations for the procedure. When a filling is completed the right way, it can last for decades! That’s why we are sure the treatment is done with precision.
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 decay can develop in the surrounding tooth structure if bacteria is allowed to flourish.
Checkups are a key part of caring for your teeth and there’s no better place to receive checkups than at Harris Dental. We have a comfortable, state-of-the-art office and a friendly, professional staff! That’s why so many individuals in Phoenix have trusted us with their teeth since 1979.
