Many people require dental fillings at some point in their lives. However, not every dental patient understands the technique and purpose of filling a cavity to preserve one’s dental health. Watch this video for expert information on the cavity filling process.
A cavity is a hole in the enamel that allows bacteria and plaque to invade the softer areas of your tooth. If left untreated, a cavity can grow large enough to affect the pulp or nerve of your tooth. By removing the decay and placing a filling in your tooth, your dentist ceases the progress of tooth erosion and preserves the nerve. Most dentists use tooth-colored fillings to give patients a natural-looking remedy that is practically unnoticeable.
For more information on guarding against cavities and tooth decay, schedule an appointment at Brighter Dental Care. Call our New Jersey office at (609) 651-8734 for access to treatment from our expert orthodontists and periodontists.

Your oral health is an important contributor to your overall health. To ensure your teeth are entrusted with the best care, it’s crucial to select a knowledgeable dentist. Before scheduling a consultation appointment with a new dentist, compile a list of criteria and questions. The following questions are essential for determining if a prospective dentist is the right fit for your family.
How Many Dental Offices Do You Have? Upon consulting a prospective dental office, ask the dentist how many locations are in his or her network. Several well-staffed dental offices are indicative of a successful dental group with a large base of satisfied patients. Rather than treating patients from one dental office, several locations allow for better individual treatment from a variety of dental specialists. Brighter Dental Care has 10 offices in the New Jersey area, with several new locations opening soon.
Do You Treat Adult and Pediatric Patients? Finding a quality dentist who treats both adult and pediatric patients doesn’t have to be difficult. Brighter Dental Care offers general dentistry and orthodontic services for dental patients of all ages. By making an appointment with a Brighter Dental Care dentist, you and your children can attend dental appointments at the same location and receive the same level of care. This makes scheduling routine cleaning appointments more convenient for your entire family.
What Are Your Specialty Services? Wait to make your initial dentistry appointment until you know your prospective dentist’s specialties. General dentistry is an important aspect of dental health, as it ensures the basic health of your teeth and gums. However, what if a more complex oral issue arises? It’s important to be confident in your dentist’s abilities to treat more severe dental health conditions, such as gum disease. The dentists at Brighter Dental Care specialize in periodontic, endodontic, and orthodontic treatments for routine and emergency dental care.
