Composite Fillings

|| Dental treatments in Centurion, Gauteng ||

Despite our diligent efforts in oral hygiene, cavities, those small, insidious holes in the enamel of our teeth, sometimes make their unwelcome appearance. These cavities, mainly formed by persistent bacteria and plaque, are not just threats to our dental health but also our overall well-being.

Understanding Cavities and Their Impact

Cavities can pose serious dental problems if left unattended. Preventative care, like regular brushing and flossing, is the frontline defence against cavities. However, even with the best preventative measures, cavities can sometimes form. These dental breaches compromise the integrity of the tooth and can lead to more significant problems if untreated.

The Evolution of Fillings

Historically, the solution to cavities was the use of metal amalgam fillings. These fillings, composed of a mixture of silver, tin, copper, and mercury, were popular for their flexibility and durability. However, they came with their own set of challenges. Not only were they visually evident due to their grey hue, but improper installations could also result in poisoning because of the mercury content.

Why Choose Composite Fillings?

Enter composite fillings – the modern, safer, and more aesthetically pleasing alternative. These fillings are crafted from a special dental resin that’s robust and enduring and can be colour-matched perfectly to your natural tooth shade. Our composite fillings offer a seamless and confident smile transformation for those with older metal amalgam fillings who want an upgrade.
