If you are one of the unlucky few who ate too much candy when you were little or just did not know your limit with that soda pop (yea we said "soda pop"), then you might have hole in your tooth. If you had the habit of eating birthday cake and not brushing your teeth, then you probably have or have had a hole in your mouth. When your tooth is cracked and or has a hole in your mouth, it is definitely time to see a dentist.
Those holes that you eyeball in the mirror and fumble around with your thumb are perfect opportunities for sugars and carbohydrates from your foods to enter and cause perfect growth for fungi and bacteria. If you want your mouth to be a bacterial vacation and hotspot and you are fine with that, then by all means keep that hole or cracked tooth. If you are like the other 95% of us who do not want bacterial and fungal infections, then you should probably get that tooth checked out and most likely get a filling. It will shut down that bacterial hotspot and no reservations will be allowed.
"But dentist! I cannot afford to have a gold/grey/red/green/(pick your color) filling! My friends will not like me and that boy will not want to kiss me! Well, your secret crush has to understand that if you do not get that filling, your tooth will look a whole lot worse... and probably will not even pay for it either!" Save yourself the trouble and just get the filling you will thank us later. We are, after all, the finest dentists in all of Chantilly, VA.
