Hello Alexandria friends of Mt. Vernon Center For Dentistry! 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 cavities – the common cold of oral health. At Mt. Vernon Center For Dentistry, we have been filling cavities for years and would be happy to take care of any cavities or other dental issues you are experiencing.
Few men and women go their entire life without getting a cavity. Unfortunately for some children, a cavity is the first health problem they suffer 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 a pain.
Because of how quick and effective dental fillings are, they are one of the best options to correct a cavity. At Mt. Vernon Center For Dentistry, Drs. Geren & Mady uses top-of-the-line instruments to examine the size and severity of the cavity and then determine exactly what type of filling is necessary. We offer white fillings that are as durable as conventional metal fillings and match your teeth precisely.
Once a decision is made on what filling you’ll need, Drs. Geren & Mady will complete the necessary preparations for the procedure. When a filling is executed the right way, it can last for decades! That’s why we make certain the procedure is done with exactness.
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 tooth decay can arise in the surrounding tooth structure if bacteria is allowed to flourish.
Checkups are an important part of caring for your teeth and there’s no better place to receive checkups than at Mt. Vernon Center For Dentistry. We have a comfortable, state-of-the-art office and a friendly, professional staff! That’s why so many individuals in Alexandria have trusted us with their teeth since 1983.
