One of the most common treatments provided by dentists is fillings. Almost everyone has had at least one cavity filled at some point in their lives. Dental filling is a restorative technique to treat and cure dental decay.
With the current advancements in dentistry, patients are now offered more choices as to the type of material used in their filling, such as gold, silver, amalgam and composite resin.
Composite fillings sometimes called white fillings are the most popular choice. They are natural tooth coloured resins that are much more durable and safer than the old style metal fillings and offer a much more attractive result when you smile compared to the old unsightly amalgam/ silver fillings.
Most patients are now opting to have composite fillings for just some of the following advantages:
- Material used can be closely matched to the shade and translucency of your own surrounding natural teeth
- Aesthetically pleasing
- Safe and non-toxic unlike the mercury in amalgam fillings
- Creates less sensitivity to extremes of hot and cold
- Good durability and resistance to fracturing in restorations that needs to withstand pressure from chewing.
- Bond to tooth structure providing stronger support
- Can also be used to repair chipped, broken or worn teeth
- Done in one appointment in most cases
Choose a composite filling to enhance your smile.
