In order to ensure your oral health has the best chance of optimum success for your teeth and gums, it is important to always make sure your mouth is cleaned out on a daily basis. If plaque build-up and food debris are allowed to linger in your mouth, tooth decay can occur. If a hole forms in your tooth enamel, this is known as a cavity. When cavities arise, they must be treated with tooth restorations in the form of dental fillings.

If you need a tooth restoration in the form of a dental filling, speak with your dentist to determine your oral health care needs. Typically, dental fillings can be achieved through the use of composite resin fillings designed to eradicate cavities and fill in the offending areas. Composite resins are extremely popular because they are tooth-colored in appearance.

Composite resins are also called tooth-colored composites because they can match the natural color of your teeth. They’re designed to mimic your tooth color, so they can blend in seamlessly with your smile. In addition, composite fillings are extremely effective for very small cavities or cavities that are too small for a dental filling treatment such as dental amalgams to fill in.

A single composite filling treatment will last anywhere between 7 to 10 years and can effectively remain in place without leaking. They’re extremely beneficial for sealing the margins of teeth and are also mercury-free. If for any reason a composite filling needs to be replaced, it can be repaired many times over without removing the original filling.

Take your smile to the next level with composite dental fillings. If you are ready to take the next step to achieve a fantastic smile with composite dental fillings, schedule an appointment with AZ Dental at our dentist office in San Jose, California by calling 408-247-5500.
