Cavities & Decay

Dental caries, also known as tooth decay or a cavity, is a disease where bacterial processes destroy hard tooth structure. These tissues gradually break down, producing dental caries (cavities, or holes in the teeth). If left untreated, the disease can lead to pain, tooth loss, and infection.


Depending on the extent and location of tooth destruction, various dental treatments can be used to restore teeth to proper form, function, and aesthetics, including:

  • Composite fillings
  • Porcelain Veneers
  • Ceramic Crowns
