Holiday Dentistry: Composite Dental Fillings

Posted .

If dental erosion has occurred to the point that a hole has formed in your tooth enamel, it is known as a cavity. Cavities are extremely dangerous and need to be treated as soon as possible. Otherwise, bacteria can seep into a tooth and lead to severe infections and eventual tooth loss. In order to prevent cavities from plugging around mouth any longer, dental fillings can be used. One highly effective form of dental filling to consider is a composite dental filling. If you are in need of a dental filling, consider composites.

Composite dental fillings are extremely effective for minimizing tooth decay and filling in any cavities that have begun. Through the use of a composite dental filling, you can apply a material to mimic the color of your natural teeth. In addition, composite fillings can even be used on extremely small cavities.

One of the greatest benefits of composite fillings can be repaired and replaced many times over without ever removing the original filling? A single composite filling can last between 7 to 10 years of regular use. In addition, composite fillings can help prevent tooth fracture and are mercury-free. They’re also extremely effective for sealing the margins of teeth so that leaks do not occur.

Don’t wait for a dental filling treatment. If you would like to know if you require a composite filling, please schedule an oral exam with Dr. Alexis Mai and our team at Elite Cosmetic and Family Dentistry at our dentist office in Cincinnati, Ohio, by calling us at 513-771-5212.
