For years, dental fillings have commonly been composed of silver amalgam. However, at our dental office, we exclusively use composite fillings—material that matches the color of your teeth. This deliberate choice is aimed at providing a more natural appearance and ensuring better long-term oral health. Here are some advantages of composite fillings:
- They bond well with your tooth, offering increased support for its structural integrity.
- They lessen the chance that the tooth that was treated will eventually break or fracture.
- They provide insulation against temperature variations brought on by food and drink.
- They improve the seals surrounding damaged areas, strengthening the tooth’s defense against leaks and decay.
- When it comes to fixing cavities that amalgam fillings cannot adequately fill, they are perfect.
- Without taking out the entire filling, they can be fixed and changed.
- They are a safer choice because they don’t include any metals or mercury.
When you opt for a composite dental filling, our dentist meticulously selects a filling color that matches your natural tooth, ensuring a more aesthetically pleasing and healthier smile. Typically, these fillings can be placed in just one visit.
