When the tooth enamel that rests on the outer layer is injured and a hole forms, it is referred to as a cavity. If a cavity burrows into the canal of a tooth, the pulp of a tooth will be at risk for infection, which can lead to tooth failure.
Overcome cavities and create an improved oral health identity with dental fillings. If your oral health care requires dental fillings, remember the following:
– Dental fillings can shelter teeth against future cavities.
– Dental amalgams can be used to stop large cavities, and composite fillings can be used to stop small and medium-sized cavities.
– Dental fillings can be restored or replaced, so if a dental amalgam fractures, it can be taken out and replaced with a new one. If a composite filling fractures, it can be repaired or covered over without removing the original filling.
– Tooth-colored composite fillings can mimic the shade of your natural teeth for a seamless blend that can easily go unnoticed.
