Fillings are done to eliminate decay, and replace the affected tooth structure. It is called a filling due to the fact that new material fills the hole that the decay left. Now days most teeth are treated with bonded tooth colored composite resin fillings. Caught early enough, cavities can be treated easily and painlessly. If not treated, decay can cause tooth discomfort and/or infection, and the tooth would require a root canal treatment or extraction.
There are 2 types of fillings; amalgam or silver fillings, and composite or white fillings. Composite fillings are tooth-colored to blend in with the remaining natural part of the tooth. Most dentists provide both kinds of fillings, however find that a lot of their patients prefer the composite fillings.
The term composite refers to the actual filling material which is a mixture of glass or quartz filler in a resin medium.
Composite fillings offer good sturdiness and resistance to fracture in small-to-mid size restorations that need to endure moderate chewing pressure. Less tooth structure is removed when the dental practitioner prepares the tooth, and this might lead to a smaller filling than with of an amalgam.
In addition, composites are "bonded", or adhesively connected, to the tooth, frequently enabling a more conservative repair for the tooth. Composite fillings require that the tooth be kept clean and dry during the entire filling procedure and they undergo stain and staining over time. The life span of a white filling can depend considerably on where it is in your mouth and how heavily your teeth come together when you bite.
Composite filling material is also typically utilized to fix front teeth that have actually chipped or worn. Where possible, esthetic bonding of composite material to front teeth is generally much less expensive than veneers or crowns. However, bonding normally does not last as long as veneers or crowns.
