Is your smile protected against the risks and hazards that pose substantial damage to your teeth during the holiday season? This includes numerous risks from foods and drinks that can easily cause enamel erosion and the appearance of cavities. Always make sure you’re taking care of your teeth to ensure cavities cannot arise. However, if you should suffer a cavity this holiday season, you’re welcome to come in for a dental filling.

One of the most effective forms of dental fillings to consider is a composite filling. Composite fillings, also known as tooth-colored composites, can last between 7 and 10 years and can be easily replaced. If a composite filling should fail or be damaged, it can be repaired or replaced many times over without ever having to even take out the original filling. In addition, composites are extremely popular due to they fact they do not contain any mercury, which is a known allergy for many individuals.

If you wish to keep the natural look of your teeth, it is best to avoid dental fillings such as amalgams. Amalgams keep a metallic shine that will remain as long as the filling remains. As an alternative, composite fillings are tooth colored in appearance and can be shaded and colored to mimic the natural look of your teeth.
