If you have suffered severe tooth decay to the point that a hole has formed in your enamel, a cavity is present. When cavities arise, it is important to have them removed immediately. Effective tooth restoration treatments designed to remove decay and cavities include white dental fillings.
White dental fillings, also known as tooth-colored composites, are extremely effective in modern dentistry due to the fact they can treat your smile without changing its appearance. Tooth-colored composites are called tooth-colored because they can be matched to the color of your teeth. In addition, composites can be crafted for extremely small cavities and are capable of sealing off your margins much better than dental amalgams can, which are known to leak.
Furthermore, composite dental fillings are often more preventative to tooth fracture and can easily last between 7 to 10 years. They are also mercury-free and will not leave behind a shiny metallic look when placed. In addition, composite fillings can be repaired numerous times without ever even having to remove the original dental filling.
