Do you know what a composite dental filling is and how it can improve your health? Composite fillings, also commonly referred to as white or tooth-colored fillings, are restorations designed to treat cavities. If dental erosion has occurred to the point that a hole in your tooth enamel forms, it is known as a cavity. Through the use of composite, cavities can be treated.
Composite fillings are often known for their durability and their look. Not only can they easily last over a decade before repairs may be needed, but they can also blend in seamlessly with your smile because they can be shaded to the natural color of your teeth. Composite dental fillings are also known for being more preventative to tooth fracture and better sealants of the margins than traditional metallic-looking dental amalgams it. Furthermore, composite fillings can be replaced easily. Composite fillings can be reapplied without ever having to remove the original filling should a repair be required.
