Oral Health Care Fundamentals: Dental Fillings

Posted .

In order to better equip your smile for any dangers that lie ahead, it is important to visit your dentist for routine oral examinations to determine if any damage has already arisen. If you have suffered dental erosion to the point a cavity has formed, a dental filling will be needed. Dental fillings are highly effective treatments that not only eradicate cavities but help prevent future decay from occurring.

If you are looking for a highly effective dental filling to prevent and treat cavities, consider composite fillings. Composite fillings, also known as tooth-colored composites, can be matched to the color of your teeth. In addition, they are highly effective for extremely small cavities that may be too small for other procedures, including dental amalgams. In addition, composite fillings are extremely effective at sealing the margins of your teeth, which is extremely helpful for preventing leaks.

In order to prevent future damage, it is important to always keep your fillings in good condition. However, if a dental filling should be damaged, it can be repaired many times over without having to remove the original filling. In addition, dental composite fillings are extremely durable and can last up to a decade of use.

Make sure to take diligent care of your cavities so that your smile can last for ages.
