Do you have a cavity? Do you ever wonder which type of filling would be the best for your smile? If you have, we recommend looking over the benefits of composite fillings.

For example, composite filling can be used for more than just repairing cavities. In fact, the material that can be used for a cavity can also restore teeth that have been broken, cracked, or damaged by habits like teeth grinding and nail chewing.

Also, composite fillings require less preparation work. Sadly, a part of placing any filling involves removing tooth decay, and naturally weakens your teeth. Fortunately, if you choose a composite filling, your dentist will have to remove less structure, thus leaving your tooth sturdier.

Finally, do you ever worry about having mercury in your mouth? If so, you aren’t alone. In the 1990’s, there was a debate on the dangers associated with mercury in dental fillings. While there has never been scientific evidence that links danger with fillings, the concerns are still understandable. To sidestep the issue completely, you may want to consider a mercury-free composite filling.
