TOOTH FILLINGS in
Getting a filling positioned is one of the most popular and important treatments in the dental field. Fillings are essential to secure your tooth with a durable material after eliminating the portion of decay. Amalgam fillings (a mixture of metals, including mercury) have been commonly used in the past since amalgam was considered a durable material that performed pretty well for filling large cavities.
ADVANTAGES OF Composite FILLINGS:
Composite Fillings have both aesthetic and functional roles, usually at the same time. For example, a cavity attacking the front portion of a tooth along the gum line may be noticeable when you smile. The tooth gets restored and appears better than ever by minutely cleaning out the soft, discolored part and then replacing it with a tooth-colored filling.
Composites Fillings consist of a mixture of liquid resin enclosed with refined ground glass particles. After being shaped to the prepared tooth structure, blue light is applied directly to the composite to harden the filling material within a couple of seconds. When it’s shaped and polished to give a high shine, the restoration process is done.
ADVANTAGES OF TOOTH-COLORED RESTORATIONS
There are many advantages of tooth-colored restorations. Resin Onlays are bonded to the teeth forming a rigid and great fit to the natural tooth. These restorations are used in conditions where too much of the tooth structure has been missing. The tooth remains intact and stronger.
As the resin used in tooth-colored restorations has fluoride, it can help avoid decay. The resin wears just like original teeth and does not need placement at the gum line, which is very healthy for your gums too!
REPLACING SILVER FILLINGS WITH A TOOTH COLORED RESTORATION
