Stop Tooth Decay with Composite Fillings from Cottage Dental Care
While Cottage Dental Care always encourages frequent cleaning and tooth care to keep your teeth strong and healthy, tooth decay can still find ways to affect your mouth. However, just because you’re suffering from tooth decay doesn’t mean you need immediate extraction. Often, we can counter the effects of tooth decay and return your teeth to looking like normal through composite fillings.
What’s a Composite Filling?
A composite filling is a compound of ceramic and plastic used to fill in spots of decay or cavities in your teeth. Before composite fillings, amalgam fillings were used, a mixture of metals, with a large portion being mercury. Both filling types are used today, but composite fillings are often seen as the safer and more natural-looking option.
Why Composite Fillings?
Ultimately, Cottage Dental Care will do everything in our power to preserve your teeth rather than replace them. And when we can’t reverse the effects of tooth decay, we can stop it and help you keep your teeth.
- Keep a Natural Look – While tooth decay breaks away at the shape and structure of your teeth, a composite filling can restore most of your tooth without compromising its appearance.
- Re-Strengthen Your Teeth – As you might expect, your teeth are left in a weakened state due to tooth decay. However, a composite filling can strengthen and support the core structure of your tooth.
- Keep Your Teeth – Tooth decay can sometimes deteriorate your teeth to the point of no return. However, if you catch decay early enough, a composite filling can ensure you keep as much of your teeth as possible.
- Incredibly Effective – The resin compound of your filling is easy to mold and will bond incredibly well with your teeth. Thus, you can expect composite fillings to be long-lasting and worry less about them popping out.
