A cavity forms when oral bacteria consume sugars and carbohydrates, then emit acids as a byproduct. These acids weaken tooth enamel, allowing the bacteria to attack. They eat away at the enamel and dentin layer of the tooth, creating a cavity. To repair the tooth and prevent further damage, Dr. Karagodsky removes the decay and fills the cavity with tooth-colored composite material. Unlike silver amalgam fillings, they won’t leave dark gray spots in your smile. The doctor cures the resin with a plasma light to bond it strongly with the tooth’s structure.
