Dentists use fillings to restore your damaged teeth. Before the filling is added to your teeth, your dentist will clean away any debris and decaying enamel and prepare the tooth for the filling material. There are several types of fillings, and composite fillings are becoming more popular because they are a bit of a cosmetic upgrade from traditional amalgam fillings made from alloy materials like mercury, silver or copper. Composite fillings are made with a combination of ceramic and plastic. The finished product is a substance that resembles the natural surface of your teeth, so you don’t see dark spot reminders of every cavity when you open your mouth.
Composite fillings are also known as resin composite fillings or “white fillings.” These cavity solutions give you the invisible, seamless look of natural teeth, so you don’t have to sacrifice your smile for cavity restoration. Composite fillings adhere to your teeth easier than other fillings and bonds to your tooth while filling the damaged areas effectively. Composite fillings are more flexible than other filling options so your dentist may be able to do less drilling in your teeth and work with a smaller opening to add in the filling. Less drilling means your dentist will be able to save more of the natural integrity of your natural tooth.
