Tooth Colored White Fillings
Bonding & Composite Restorations
A trip to your local dentist is warranted whenever you have a hunch that a cavity has formed. A buildup of plaque in a person’s mouth will inevitably lead to the formation of a cavity. Plaque tends to pile up in one’s mouth if the proper care isn’t taken in brushing and flossing. Once enough bacteria and plaque have made a home in a patient’s teeth, the pulp of a tooth will begin to be affected. This infection is what a cavity looks like.
To remedy a tooth that has been affected by a cavity, your local dentist will have to remove the decayed part of the tooth and then fill in the part of the tooth that has been removed from the mouth. White fillings, composite fillings, mercury free fillings, and tooth colored fillings are all available to help restore a person’s tooth after a cavity has been repaired. Each type of filling comes with its own pros and cons. Your options should be discussed thoroughly with your dentist before final choices have been made.
Bonding is also another option that can ameliorate the appearance of one’s teeth. Cavity or not, both bonding and fillings can be used to improve the structural integrity as well as the appearance of patients’ teeth. Bonding is not a time-consuming process and won’t need multiple visits or an inordinate dental session in order to achieve the desired result.
