Restoring a tooth is a delicate process, especially a tooth that is infected with decay. Tooth decay (caused by excessive plaque and tartar buildup) leads to a cavity, which is a hole in your tooth. To treat a cavity and re-establish the health and structural integrity of your tooth, your dentist will clean away the decay from within your tooth and fill the cavity with a tooth-colored composite resin or ceramic filling.
Are Tooth-Colored Fillings Better?
Tooth-colored fillings offer the benefit of blending in with your teeth so that your restoration doesn’t stand out. However, there are more than just esthetic benefits to choosing resin or ceramic over traditional metal fillings. Resin and ceramic are more biocompatible than metal fillings, which means they are safer for your teeth and your overall health. These materials can also be securely bonded to your teeth creating a more permanent seal against oral bacteria, decreasing the chance for failure, and reducing the chances of reinfection. If you have metal fillings, we may be able to replace them with ceramic or composite resin for your continued dental health.
