Silver Diamine Fluoride is a colorless liquid containing fluoride and silver ions. It’s an antimicrobial agent that stops cavities from getting worse by hardening the tooth structure.

This procedure doesn’t involve any local anesthetic or drilling. The treated areas of the teeth turn black and are barely noticeable in the back teeth but the black areas can be very obvious on the front teeth.
