Benefits of Composite Fillings

Do you need a dental filling? Do you ever wonder which type might be the best for your smile? If so, we’re here to help you make an informed decision be giving you three facts about composite fillings.

  1. Do you want a beautiful smile? Really, who doesn’t? Fortunately, composite fillings can help you maintain the natural appearance of your smile. A dentist can match your composite fillings to the tone and color of your existing teeth, helping you maintain your attractive smile. This makes this type of filling extremely useful for areas of the mouth that are particularly visible.
  2. Before your filling can be placed, your dentist will have to remove decay from the tooth. Unfortunately, this can mean that teeth with a filling—or many types of dental work—can be structurally weaker than your natural teeth. However, composite fillings literally bind to your tooth’s surface, which offers additional support.
  3. We know that dental fillings are extremely useful for repairing a cavity, but did you know that composite filings are actually very versatile. In addition to repairing cavities, composite fillings can be used to restore chipped or broken teeth, and even teeth that have been damaged by habits like nail biting and teeth grinding.
