Tooth Colored Fillings Dentistry Frisco, Texas
Repairing Tooth Decay & CavitiesOne of the most common dental ailments is a cavity, and at our Sheer Smiles dental practice, Dr. Shir offers comfortable, natural-looking treatment solutions for this problem. Cavities are created by bacteria that colonize on enamel and feed on sugars in the food you eat. This bacteria forms plaque, the yellowish sticky film you might see on your teeth that eventually turns to calculus (tartar). The bacteria can wear away teeth causing decay. Root canal infections and gum disease also occur because of oral bacteria. Brushing and flossing is very important to keep this bacteria in check, but if you do have teeth with decay, our Frisco professionals can repair them, giving them back both their health and beauty.
Tooth-Colored Fillings for ChildrenTooth decay develops when the acidic by-product of bacteria breaks down tooth structure. When this acid erosion causes a pit to develop in the tooth, that pit is called a cavity. At Sheer Smiles Dental, Dr. Shir can repair cavities using composite filling material that is matched to your tooth color. Our fillings are metal-free to eliminate your exposure to mercury.Your Frisco dentist will remove any present decay and then place the composite filling material in the pit. This is referred to as a direct restoration because it is shaped and placed directly onto the tooth. Once the material is placed, it is hardened by a special light and then polished until it blends in with your natural tooth. Composite resin fillings, also known as white fillings, are durable, long-lasting, and best of all, very aesthetically pleasing.

What diet and nutritional advice can be offered for building strong teeth?
Experts agree that children need food from all the major food groups to grow properly and stay healthy. Too many carbohydrates, sugars (for example, from cake, cookies, candies, milk, fruit juice, and other sugary foods and beverages), and savory foods and starches (for example, pretzels and potato chips) can cause tooth decay. How long carbohydrates remain on the teeth is the main culprit that leads to tooth decay. Read more
The effects of fruit on kids teeth
We all know that fruit is full of vitamins and an important part of kids diets. But did you know that too much fruit (whether it’s fresh fruit, fruit juices, dried fruit or canned fruit) can have a negative effect and contribute to problems such as cavities and erosion, especially if your kids are grazing on fruit all day?
