Fillings are done to eliminate decay, and replace the affected tooth structure. It is called a filling due to the fact that brand-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 pain and/or infection, and the tooth would need a root canal treatment or extraction.
There are two 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 offer both types of fillings, however find that many of their clients like 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 provide excellent sturdiness and resistance to fracture in small-to-mid size restorations that need to stand up to moderate chewing pressure. Less tooth structure is eliminated when the dental practitioner prepares the tooth, and this may result in a smaller filling than with of an amalgam.
In addition, composites are "bonded", or adhesively connected, to the tooth, typically enabling a more conservative repair for the tooth. Composite fillings require that the tooth be kept clean and dry throughout the whole filling procedure and they go through stain and staining with 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 frequently used to repair front teeth that have actually cracked or worn. Where possible, esthetic bonding of composite material to front teeth is generally much cheaper than veneers or crowns. However, bonding normally does not last as long as veneers or crowns.
