Dental fillings are highly effective tooth restorations designed to treat and eliminate cavities. When cavities are present in your mouth, they must be removed immediately, or they can lead to further oral health ailments. One highly effective dental filling treatment to consider is a composite filling.
If you have dental erosion that has occurred to the point a cavity has formed, it will need to be treated with a dental filling. A highly effective dental filling to consider is a composite dental filling. Composite fillings are tooth colored in appearance and can be matched with the natural color of your smile. In addition, they are extremely beneficial for cavities too small for your dental amalgams. They also better sealants of the margins and more preventative to tooth fractures than amalgams are. Furthermore, they are extremely durable and can be replaced many times over without having to remove the original filling. Typically, a single composite filling can last 7-10 years before it needs to be replaced.
