Tooth Coloured Composite Fillings
Do you have a cavity you suspect needs a filling? Before you visit a dentist there are some things you should know. Over the last 40 years, the materials that dentists use to fill decayed teeth have greatly advanced. Where once upon a time, as recently as 10 years ago, dentists would use silver fillings that contain mercury, a harmful toxic chemical. These silver fillings often would swell as time goes on, causing the tooth to be prone to further decay, and subsequently, the “death” of the tooth, when the decay reaches the root of the tooth or the nerve. At this point, what once was a filling, is now a tooth that requires a root canal and crown.
Save yourself from needless exposure to harmful chemicals and needless root canals with composite fillings. Composite fillings are the newest advancement in the materials used to fill decayed teeth. At Star Dental, since its inception, we have been using nothing but composite fillings, not only for the best option care of our patients but also because they look better. Composite fillings are able to closely match the colour of your existing teeth. These tooth-coloured fillings help to not only keep your smile healthy but also to keep your smile looking its best.
