Treating cavities is essential for optimum oral health. Cavities arise when holes in your tooth enamel are formed. In order to effectively eradicate cavities, the holes must be filled in with a dental filling material. Dental fillings come in two forms, including dental amalgams and composite dental fillings.

If your smile is in need of a tooth restoration, it is important to assess which one is best for you. Always visit your dentist for routine examinations and a diagnosis of your oral health. However, if you are suffering from a cavity, it will need to be removed and replaced with a dental filling material. Ideally, composite dental fillings are a wonderful option as they provide a plethora of benefits. One highly effective benefit of composite dental fillings is the fact that they can be color-coded to be naturally blended with the rest of your smile.

Composite dental fillings are also extremely effective for small cavities, even ones too small for dental amalgams to take care of properly. In addition, they are extremely durable and can last up to a decade before they may need to be repaired or replaced. Normally with a dental filling, it will need to be taken out before a new one can be put it in, but composites can be replaced without having to remove the original filling. This can provide decades of support for a vulnerable tooth. In addition, dental fillings are mercury-free, better sealants of the margins, and more preventative to tooth fractures in comparison to dental amalgams.
