Treat Cavities Safely and Effectively with Composite Fillings
Good oral hygiene and a healthy diet can help keep your teeth healthy, strong and cavity-free. If you do get a cavity or two, you can turn to Dr. Brianne Luu from Gentle Care Dentistry for cavity treatment. Your Azusa, California dentist treats cavities safely and effectively with tooth composite fillings. Composite fillings are safe, strong and long-lasting, enabling you to get the most from your cavity treatment.
Safest Dental Fillings
Composite fillings are composed of non-toxic, biocompatible resin material mixed with particles of glass quartz or ceramic. They’re the safest dental fillings to use for many people as they contain no metal, mercury or other substances that can impair your health or trigger allergies. Composite fillings are not only safe, but they’re also highly effective in stopping decay and restoring your oral health.
Many people choose composite fillings due to their tooth-colored appearance. Unlike silver or gold fillings which stand out, composite fillings are inconspicuous and won’t compromise your smile’s esthetic appeal.
Functional Advantages of Composite Fillings
Esthetics, health and safety are three good reasons to consider composite fillings for cavity treatment. When it comes to performance, composite resin fillings offer the following advantages:
Less drilling – Composite fillings don’t require as much enamel removal for their application as silver or gold fillings, so your dentist can do less drilling. Composite fillings also retain more of your tooth structure to avoid unnecessarily weakening your tooth.
Strength & durability – Composite fillings bond directly onto the surface of your teeth which helps strengthen their structure while protecting you from future cavities. Their durable composition restores your tooth’s usefulness for chewing and grinding your food.
Long-lasting – Composite fillings establish a tight bond with your teeth, making your fillings less likely to break or come loose. With proper care, your filling can last seven years or longer before needing to be replaced or repaired.
If you need cavity treatment, you can’t go wrong with composite fillings. Contact Dr. Brianne Luu from Gentle Care Dentistry in Azusa, CA, at +1 626-466-9596 today to schedule your composite filling treatment.
