At Hopscotch, we repair cavitated and broken teeth with tooth colored restorations called dental composites. We do not use silver amalgam in our practice and try to maintain a practice of minimally invasive dentistry. This means removing only the areas of the tooth that are decayed and then restoring them in an aesthetic fashion. We believe that keeping the natural tooth is best whenever possible. Sometimes, depending on the depth and location of a cavity, we can even repair cavities without numbing.
