It is true that an untreated cavity can have a negative impact on your appearance if it is in a tooth that is visible in your smile. But any cavity can be painful, contribute to bad breath or result in an infected tooth. Ultimately, you could be facing an extraction. Our dentist, Dr. Joseph Pope, and the team at Pope Dentistry offer dental fillings in Peoria, Illinois, to restore the health and structure of your tooth. Call 309-688-7007 for your appointment.
