With advances in modern dentistry, consumers can expect upgrades in all aspects of dental care, including cavity treatment. Many dentists today are recommending composite cavity fillings over traditional silver amalgam fillings to treat cavities. Composite fillings are biocompatible, strong, safe, and effective in treating decay and providing long-term protection for your teeth. They’re also highly discreet due to their tooth-colored appearance. You can obtain composite filling treatments at Carolinas BioHealth Dentistry in Clemmons, North Carolina.
Composite fillings are completely bio-compatible with your teeth, posing no risk to your gums or teeth. They’re composed of acrylic resin mixed with powdered glass for strength and durability. Their tooth-colored appearance makes them perfect for front teeth as they blend in with your smile. Their resilience makes them a good choice for back teeth as they can withstand years of biting and chewing. Other advantages include the following:
Composite tooth-colored fillings repair tooth decay naturally to retain your smile’s aesthetic appeal. Dr. Tyler Wynne will start by assessing your tooth and gum health to pinpoint areas that need treatment. He will then numb your teeth, so you feel no pain or discomfort during your procedure. He’ll precisely remove the decay using a dental drill and prepare your tooth to receive the filling.
Composite fillings are applied in layers to fill the hole left by the cavity. After each layer, the resin material is cured using a LED or laser curing light to harden it. Dr. Wynne will mold the material to the size and shape of your tooth to ensure it’s perfectly sealed against future decay. Upon completion of your treatment, your tooth will be restored as good as new. Composite fillings make repairing and restoring decayed teeth easier than ever to preserve the beauty of your smile.
