Dental decay affects people of all ages. Left untreated, a cavity only worsens and may result in tooth loss and gum deterioration. Dr. Richardson uses tooth-colored, composite resin fillings to esthetically restore decayed teeth.
At all checkups and new patient exams, Dr. Richardson uses a non-invasive DIAGNOdent laser to scan teeth for decay and areas of demineralization, which are precursors to cavities. To place new fillings or replace old metal ones, she custom-tints a small amount of composite resin and bonds it in place. After shaping and polishing the restoration, the result is an attractive, decay-resistant, and long-lasting repair. Dr. Richardson also places metal fillings on request.
