Fillings for Dental Cavities

At some point or other in our lives, most of us wind up with a cavity. In most cases, a cavity calls for your dentist to remove the infected area of the tooth, and replace the missing tooth structure with a tooth colored restoration. These tooth colored filling are made of a composite resin which were created to be used as an alternative to traditional amalgam (mercury containing) dental fillings. Composite resin Dental fillings are strong, durable, and make for a very natural looking smile. If you have a cavity in a tooth, broken fillings, or amalgam fillings, this type of dental filling is well worth discussing with your dentist. Amalgam fillings can easily be removed and replaced with far more attractive tooth colored fillings. These fillings actually strengthen your tooth beyond the level it had with the amalgam fillings.
