When there is a minor damage on a tooth, it needn’t necessarily be extracted. A dental composite filling can help to restore the tooth while ensuring it is has an aesthetic match for the rest of the teeth. This procedure is becoming the number one option for tooth restoration, thanks to the many advantages it has over traditional fillings.
Composite fillings are usually designed to match the colour of natural teeth. A composite filled tooth will look as natural as the tooth was before it was chipped or damaged through decay. The filling is shaped to fit perfectly. It is also polished carefully so that all the natural contours of the tooth are restored.
Versatile Fillings to help preserve the tooth enamel.
Composite fillings are much easier to prepare than traditional fillings. They bond more naturally to the teeth, therefore only a few procedures need to be done after the tooth is filled. In traditional fillings, significant portions of the tooth need to be removed first before filling. This makes traditional fillings impossible to perform on chipped front teeth.
Traditional fillings use silver amalgam. For a long time this was a controversial topic, since silver amalgam fillings were believed to contain mercury. Composite fillings are made of material that is safe. It does not contain any chemical that may be harmful to your health.
