Over the years dentistry has evolved and advanced in ways that are quite impressive. Years ago it was only possible to treat a cavity by using some type of amalgam filling that was usually noticeable and in many ways unattractive. Times have changed considerably and through the use of composite fillings, it is possible to treat a cavity using a tooth colored filling that is highly durable and resistant to fracturing. This type of technology has advanced substantially in recent years and is quickly becoming the new standard in correcting a fracture or cavity in a patient’s tooth.
They Can Last A Lifetime When Properly Cared For By The Patient
Best of all today’s modern cosmetically appealing composite fillings can be used on front teeth as well as back teeth. This type of filling is highly preferred by patients who like a filling that looks natural and almost invisible. While composite fillings can be a little more costly than amalgam, they can last a lifetime when properly cared for by the patient. Composite fillings are even more popular than gold fillings and are usually the best choice for the most natural looking bright and attractive smile possible.
Regular Routine Dental Checkups Are The Best
Finally, keep in mind that the best option is to always just avoid cavities. The easiest way to do this is to simply maintain the best possible oral hygiene and care routine at home. This includes everything from brushing twice per day using high-quality toothpaste to flossing on a daily basis. In addition, eating a balanced diet and having regular routine dental checkups are the best way to avoid ever having to deal with a cavity. With so much to offer it is clear to see why composite fillings have become so popular in recent years.
