A composite filling is a “tooth colored” filling matched to the shade of your surrounding tooth enamel. We recommend composite fillings over the traditional amalgam fillings as they do not contain any harsh contaminates such as mercury and they don’t stand out as much, looking better cosmetically as compared to silver-colored fillings. Composite fillings are also known as “mercury-free” fillings.
Gingivitis & Gum Disease
It is important to note that one of the biggest threats to your dental health is Gingivitis. If left untreated, you will more rapidly lose the important gum tissue that surrounds and supports your teeth causing the need for fillings and complete mouth restorations. Prolonged deterioration of gum tissue can lead to the need for dentures or expensive implants later in life. Depending on the level of your oral hygiene, it may take advanced treatment to get you on the
path of good dental health, but the results are worth the effort.
Complex Cavities - Fillings
Sometimes larger cavities that need more work may require crowns. A crown is necessary when the decay area is so large that a filling may not be secure on the tooth. A crown is required when the risk of the filling is greater than what a dentist is comfortable with.
When the tooth decay is greater than a filling a crown, sometimes a dentist will need to extract the tooth. In this case, latest technologies allow dentist to create an artificial post and replace the tooth via dental implant. Visit our Pro Smile Dental Care office for more information if you are concerned your tooth may require additional services greater than a filling.
