What is Tooth Decay?
Tooth decay is one of the most common oral health problems, second only to gum disease. It’s caused by the accumulation of harmful bacteria on the chewing surfaces of teeth or along the gumline. As a preventive measure, dentists treat decay by removing all traces of infection from the tooth and replacing it with a filling material.
Benefits of Tooth-Colored Fillings
Tooth-colored fillings come with other great benefits as well. In addition to blending in with your smile’s natural color, your fillings also support your tooth’s remaining structure. This ensures that your tooth’s strength and functionality is improved, even beyond what’s possible with amalgam fillings. Tooth-colored fillings don’t respond to temperature changes the way amalgams do. Temperature fluctuation can cause amalgams and teeth to change shape or develop cracks, but your tooth-colored fillings won’t do this.
