Dentistry Highlights: Composite Dental Fillings

Posted .

If you wish to restore your smile this holiday season, it is important to visit your dentist for a complete oral examination to determine if any cavities are present. Cavities form when dental erosion occurs to the point a hole has formed in your tooth enamel. If left untreated, it can lead to serious infections and eventual tooth death. To correct any cavities that may be present, consider a tooth restoration treatment such as a composite dental filling.

One of the highest quality procedures of dental fillings available for filling in cavities is composite fillings, also known as tooth-colored fillings. They are tremendously popular in that they can be matched to the color of your teeth.

Composite fillings are tremendously effective for tooth fracture and at sealing your margins. Plus, leaks are much less likely to arise. A typical composite filling will last roughly 7 to 10 years before it needs to be replaced. Luckily, composite fillings can be revamped multiple times over without ever having to remove the original filling.
