Are you in need of a dental filling treatment? Has a cavity affected your smile and continues to eat through any of your teeth? If so, a dental filling treatment in the form of a composite restoration can effectively fill in the cavity and give you a healthy smile. Composite dental fillings, also call tooth-colored fillings are designed to a mimic the natural look of your teeth and can be implemented to eradicate the damage that cavities manifest.
When seeking out a dental filling, focus on treatments that can effectively eradicate any decaying material in a tooth and fill out the cavity to its fullest. If you have extremely small or minute cavities, tooth-colored composites can be highly effective. Composite resins are designed to help fill in small cavities that even dental amalgams cannot effectively treat.
Composite fillings, also known as tooth-colored composites, are really popular because they can match the natural color of your smile. They’re also highly effective for repairing cavities many times over and can be placed atop dental fillings without removing the original filling. In addition, they are extremely durable and can last anywhere from 7 to 10 years with the proper care.
If you are in need of a composite filling, speak with your dentist to determine if the treatment is right for you. Also, be aware that they are mercury-free which can be beneficial to many individuals who may have allergies. In addition, composite fillings are better sealants of the margins than dental amalgams and will not leak as amalgam sometimes can.
Don’t get left in the dark by having poor oral hygiene without composite dental fillings.
