Smiles matter, sometimes even more than we think. Several studies conducted across the world have confirmed the influential role of smiles on our career success, relationships, and self-confidence. A confident person smiles more. And the ones who smile more often feel more confident and approachable to others. But what if you are unhappy about your smile due to your teeth's imperfections like decay and cavity? One of the most standard dental problems people endure is tooth decay. However, with the advancement in dental technology, various dental filling options are available to fix cavities and restore the teeth's health and aesthetics .
Fillings can be made from several materials like gold, amalgam, etc. However, the most popular choice to fix cavities and tooth decay are composite resin fillings, as they closely resemble the color and look of the teeth. Hence, composite fillings are suitable to fix cavities and decay in both visible and invisible areas of the teeth. Moreover, composite fillings are also used to improve the appearance of one's smile by repairing broken, cracked, or stained teeth to make them appear more aesthetic and even.
Fixing tooth decay and cavities with composite fillings offers the following benefits:
If the patient has one or several decayed teeth, we start the composite filling process by numbing the area using an anesthetic. Once the mouth becomes numb, we extract the decay and clean the tooth so as to eliminate all harmful bacteria present in it. The tooth is then filled using composite fillings that offer exceptional sealing properties, thus preventing any reinfection and further tooth decay.
