If you are experiencing pain in one of your teeth, it is important to visit your dentist for an examination to determine the best course of treatment. If left untreated, cavities can create other oral health problems such as infections and tooth loss. To prevent damage to the interior of your tooth, a dental filling such as a composite resin filling may be a good choice.

Because composite fillings use a specially crafted material, they can even be used in extremely small cavities that amalgam fillings cannot treat effectively. Composite fillings are known for their ability to seal margins of teeth to prevent bacteria from penetrating between the filling and the tooth.

Composite fillings are also known as tooth-colored fillings because they can match the natural color of your teeth. This is extremely beneficial for individuals who want an inconspicuous solution to their problem.They’re also mercury-free. They do take longer to place than amalgam fillings because they must be placed in layers and each layer needs to be cured before the next one can be placed.
