Fillings Prevent The Spreading Of The Cavity
At the beginning of your filling, the decayed area of your tooth will be cleaned. Next, the dentist will apply the filling into the cavity and seal it. When the filling is applied, the nerves will be protected and no longer be exposed. When the nerves are exposed, a toothache will shortly follow.
Tooth Shape Will Be Enhanced
When a composite filling is used, your tooth's shape will be enhanced. This will be possible because the filling will provide a nice amount of support. Having a filling is a fix for a tooth that has decayed. This is why no damage will be caused by the filling.
Teeth That Are Fractured Become Strengthened
A tooth that is fractured can be easily repaired with a filling. Normally, white composites will be integrated because of their similarities in color. A fracture can easily occur because of a sports injury that causes oral damage. A tooth could also sustain a fracture while eating hard food.
Your Tooth's Color Can Be Improved
When a stain or discoloring is present, a composite type of filling will be used. Having a stain or discoloring may happen after drinking wine or coffee.
Tooth Decay Can Be Prevented
Your teeth develop tiny holes that can easily trap particles from food and sugars. Although these holes will not be known as cavities, they are the starting points for decay and can be prevented with composite material.
They Are Long-lasting
When you decide to have fillings that are porcelain or gold, they will protect the tooth for more than 15 years. Not only that, but some may even last a lifetime.
With the advancements in fillings today, many are unable to corrode as easily as others. Of course, you will be paying more for the long-lasting fillings but the amount of protection will be worth it.
Your Natural Teeth's Aesthetics Can Be Matched
If a filling is a composite resin, then it will be perfect for the aesthetics of the tooth. This filling will be perfect when matching the other teeth. You will no longer need to be concerned about the appearance of the tooth. There will be no way others will notice a difference in you having a filling.
Flouride Can Be Infused Into The Filling
If you decide to get a glass ionomer filling, they are infused with fluoride and constantly release it into the tooth. This fluoride will provide additional protection from any further decay.
