Do you have cavities you don’t know about? Often, cavities form before we can feel their effects, thus making it challenging to stop them before they get further along. However, with dental fillings such as dental composites and dental amalgams, cavities can be treated and eliminated and setting you back on track with a healthy smile.

Listed below are a few stupendous benefits that dental fillings can provide for your smile:

– If you are interested in a more natural-looking filling, composites are the better choice, as dental composites can be color-matched to your teeth for a more natural look.

– For large cavities, dental amalgams tend to work best, and for smaller cavities, dental composites can do the job spectacularly.

– Mercury is used to bind the metals that make up dental amalgams. Due to its controversial nature, some would prefer to avoid the use of mercury, and instead, go with dental composites for their fillings, as they are mercury-free.

– If a dental amalgam becomes damaged it will need to be detached before it is replaced, but with composites, the original filling can be repaired many times over.
