When many people think of dental fillings, they think of silver or gold products inserted into their smiles for a lifetime. Yes, there are still silver and gold fillings available, but there is also an option that restores your oral health and looks completely natural: composite fillings.
Composite fillings are also known as tooth-colored or white fillings. They are great options for those who need to fill a cavity in the front or back teeth, and they are great for people who wish for a white and bright smile.
There are many reasons why you should consider the use of a composite filling, and those reasons include:
· The filling is matched to the color and shade of your teeth, so it provides natural-looking results. This makes it possible to repair the front teeth as well.
· The filling bonds to the structure of the tooth, which provides further support.
· The filling can do much more than fill a cavity. It can also repair a chipped, broken, or worn tooth.
· The filling is easy to place. Many dental fillings require the removal of tooth enamel to complete the treatment; however, composite fillings do not require enamel removal and they successfully repair the tooth.
