If you are looking to fix any imperfection with a quick cosmetic procedure, fillings might be the right treatment for you. This procedure is great for fixing the appearance of your teeth without having to undergo an invasive procedure. Fillings can repair chipped and cracked teeth, also used to smooth out crevices, fill in cavities, and cover up any imperfection.
In the past, metal was used for fillings. However, research has shown that metal can start leaking through to your system from the constant use and natural wear. Metal doesn’t bond well to the tooth surface, so it leaves space for bacteria to grow and create further damage. Using new material such as composite resins and such, allows for a more natural look.
Fillings can prevent tooth decay by closing spaces where bacteria can enter. The benefits also include strengthening your teeth by giving them extra protection. The materials that we use are durable and can last decades if taken care of properly.
