When decay weakens enamel, the resulting soft area is called a cavity. Left untreated, the decay will eventually cause extensive damage to the tooth, and potentially cause the nerve of the tooth to be infected. However, if the cavity is caught early, your dentist can treat it with a simple filling, typically in one appointment.
What is a Composite White Filling?
Composite White fillings are a contemporary choice suitable for most cases. Unlike silver amalgam fillings, which contain traces of mercury, composite fillings are entirely mercury-free. Additionally, composite fillings can be much smaller than silver ones, thanks to their smaller particle size. This preservation of your natural tooth structure is a notable advantage. Moreover, these fillings are almost indistinguishable from your natural teeth due to their ability to closely match the tooth’s colour.
With Composite White Fillings, we prioritize both your dental health and the aesthetics of your smile.
