Are you aware of the benefits of composite fillings? A composite filling is a cosmetic restoration treatment that is designed to repair cavities by filling them in with a durable material that can return the tooth to its normal function and shape. Once the decayed tooth material is removed and the area is cleaned, a composite can be placed.

Through the use of composite dental fillings, individuals can benefit from an array of advantages. Composite dental fillings are better at preventing tooth fracture than traditional dental amalgams. They can also be used to fill in cavities that may be too small for amalgams to effectively treat. They are also better for sealing the margins of cavities; and they’re mercury-free. Some people are allergic to mercury, and others have concerns about it’s safety.

One of the key benefits of composite fillings is that they are tooth-colored in appearance. They can be shaded to match the color of your teeth. If you have suffered extensive dental erosion to the point a cavity has formed, you may want to consider the use of a composite filling to repair the damage.
