In order to ensure your oral health remains at its peak, it is important to always employ the necessary treatments to keep your smile safe from dental erosion and other forms of dental decay. If a cavity occurs to the point that a hole has formed in your tooth enamel, notify your dentist as soon as possible. At this point, it must be treated with a tooth restoration such as a dental filling. If you need a dental filling to help eradicate any tooth decay, come visit us for a white filling treatment.
Dental fillings are extremely important if you have any decaying tooth material that must be eradicated from your mouth. Once a cavity is filled in, not only will it help prevent the disease from progressing further, but it can protect the tooth from future forms of tooth decay. Composite dental fillings, also known as white dental fillings, are extremely durable and more preventative of fracture than other forms of dental filling. They can also last between 7 to 10 years before they may need to be repaired or replaced. One popular benefit of composite fillings is that they will not need to be removed when they need to be replaced. Instead, new composites can be placed directly over top numerous times over without having to remove the original filling.
Composite fillings are extremely popular because they can help match the color of your teeth. For this reason, they are also known as tooth-colored fillings. In addition, they are extremely popular for microscopic damage that has occurred, including small cavities. In some cases of cavities being too small for other dental fillings being used including dental amalgams, composites can still function effectively and can be used for any size cavity. Furthermore, they are better sealants of the margins than amalgams are. This means leaking will not occur. In addition, they are mercury-free which is extremely beneficial to many individuals who may be allergic to the ailment.
The most amazing smiles and oral health care routines begin with composite dental fillings.
