A common procedure that many patients may require some time during a dental visit are fillings. White fillings are usually made up of a resin combination which is used to restore teeth that have been damaged due to cavities or tooth decay. Most patients favor white fillings over other filling options because they are designed to match the natural colour of your teeth.
Typically, white fillings can be administered within one dental visit. The same materials can be used for bonding which can mask some surface defects in teeth and to help reshape teeth to enhance their appearance.
Fillings or restorations are used to treat cavities. If the cavities are left untreated, more complications can develop such as infections, pain, discomfort, the requirement of a root canal treatment, or even tooth loss.
Treating your cavities right away can save a lot of money and also help avoid possible complications they may develop if left untreated.
