Keeping your smile safe from the risks of tooth decay is essential for optimum oral health. At any time, dental erosion can occur to your teeth and gums. If a hole forms in your tooth enamel, this is known as a cavity. The cavity should be eliminated as soon as it is found. Effective tooth restorations used for treating cavities exist in the form of dental fillings.
Dental erosion is a known oral health hazard that can lead to oral accidents and injuries and severe dental damage. Due to the oral risks associated with dental erosion, it is important to maintain a healthy smile that is always free of debris and harmful acids. To accomplish this, you should be brushing and flossing your teeth on a daily basis. However, if a cavity should arise, it will require a tooth restoration treatment in the form of a dental filling. One highly effective option to consider is a composite dental filling.
Composite fillings are designed to mimic the natural color of your teeth. They’re even extremely effective for filling in cavities that are too small for other treatments to effectively repair. In addition, composite fillings, also known as tooth-colored fillings, are very durable and can last up to 7 to 10 years of continuous protection. They are also very good for sealing the margins of teeth and preventing leakage. Furthermore, they are also mercury-free and more preventative to tooth fractures than other similar dental filling treatments such as dental amalgams are.
