Have you had a checkup in recent months to check for cavities? Given the risks factors for cavities to spring up without you knowing it, you may have a cavity right now. A cavity is caused by the erosion of tooth enamel until a hole has formed in the tooth. If left untreated, a cavity can lead to infection and potential tooth failure. Luckily, dental fillings can be used to stop the decay and correct the issue.
– Dental amalgams can be installed to fill in large cavities, and composite fillings can be installed to fill in small and medium-sized cavities.
– Tooth-colored composite fillings can match the color of your natural teeth for a seamless blend that can easily go unnoticed.
– If a dental amalgam becomes damaged, it can be taken out and replaced with a new version, whereas if a composite filling is damaged, it can be repaired or covered over without taking out the original filling.
– Dental fillings can guard teeth against future cavities.
