Is your smile safe from cavities? Often, cavities form before we can feel their effects, thus making it too late to prevent them from happening. However, with dental fillings such as dental composites and dental amalgams, cavities can be stopped.

Listed below are a few enormous benefits that dental fillings can provide for your smile:

– For larger cavities, dental amalgams tend to work best, and for smaller cavities, dental composites can do the job efficiently.

– If a dental amalgam becomes damaged it will need to be removed before it is replaced, but with composites, the original filling can be revamped many times over.

– Mercury binds the metals together in dental amalgams. Due to its controversial nature, some would prefer to forgo the use of mercury, and instead, choose dental composites for their fillings, as they are mercury-free.

– If you are looking for a natural-looking filling, composites are the better choice, as dental composites can be color-matched to your teeth for a more normal look.
