If you always make sure that your teeth are well cared-for through effective oral hygiene routines and regular checkups at our office, they serve you well for the rest of your life. If you should ever suffer any form of dental damage or oral accident or injury, you may need a dental restoration. If a cavity has formed in your tooth enamel, a dental filling will be required to keep it healthy.
Composite fillings, also known as tooth-colored fillings, are extremely popular as they can be color-matched to the shade of your teeth. Composite fillings are also extremely helpful for very small cavities and can seal the margins of a cavity much better than traditional dental amalgams. Unlike amalgams, composites are mercury-free and better for preventing tooth fractures.
Composite dental fillings are known for their durability, and they can last seven to ten years before they need additional layers. One of the key benefits that composite fillings provide is that when they need to be replaced, you do not need to remove the original filling. Instead, composites can be replaced and repaired many times over.
Our team at Nelson and Associates Frisco looks forward to enhancing your smile with composite dental fillings. To book an appointment at our dental office in Frisco, Texas, please contact Dr. H Arthur Nelson and our team at 972-712-9919.
