Fortunately, with modern dental advancements like composite fillings, treating cavities has never been easier. Unlike traditional amalgam fillings, composite fillings offer a more aesthetic, durable, and biocompatible solution. These fillings are made from a tooth-colored resin material that can be closely matched to the color of your existing teeth, resulting in a seamless, virtually invisible restoration. But the benefits of composite fillings go beyond their aesthetic appeal. When placing a composite filling, less of the natural tooth structure needs to be removed, and the filling material bonds directly to the tooth, resulting in a stronger, more secure restoration. Composite fillings also tend to cause less tooth sensitivity compared to their amalgam counterparts. From restoring the function and structure of a decayed tooth to preventing further decay and strengthening the remaining tooth structure, composite fillings are a beneficial and versatile restorative treatment.
