Do You Know the Benefits of White Fillings
Few people tend to have some fillings in their teeth, which outwardly looks distorted. However, with white filling the problem can be easily resolved and thereby the teeth look naturally flawless.
People often confuse silver filling with the white filling. Silver fillings are also known as dental amalgams and are made of a combination of metals such as silver, tin, copper and mercury. White fillings on the other hand are also called composite fillings but these are made of plastic and ceramic.
There are various benefits of white fillings; from an aesthetic viewpoint you can barely tell any work has been done on the teeth. The main advantage of white filling is its colour, if you develop a cavity in a highly visible part of your mouth, you may prefer a tooth-colored filling. Moreover, your smile becomes more pleasing to the eyes; the white fillings however can be bonded to the tooth effectively which in turn helps to make it stronger.
White fillings support teeth that have been weakened by decay and strengthen crooked teeth too. Composite fillings require a very small amount of tooth matter to be removed for placement, which means much of your natural tooth is preserved.
If you are in need of a filling, there can’t be any other best option than this. This is even cost-effective and would give your teeth an ecstatic look. The dentist will perform a deep clean of your mouth first; thereafter pain relief might be suggested before carrying out this procedure.
