Tooth Coloured Composite Fillings
Do you have a cavity you suspect needs a filling? Before you visit a dentist there’s somethings 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 which 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 you’re self from needles exposure to harmful chemicals and needles root canals with composite fillings. Composite fillings are the newest advancement in the materials used to fill decayed teeth.
