Ask our team at Blunston Dental Group in Airdrie, Alberta about metal-free, white composite fillings.
Why do I need to have a filling?
When tooth decay has caused a hole to form on your tooth surface, also known as a cavity, you will need a filling. If you don't get a filling, cavities may worsen or lead to more severe problems, such as bone loss. An untreated cavity can also lead to an abscess. You might also need a filling if a tooth has cracked or has been damaged.
What type of filling do I need?
A bonded filling is appropriate when the cavity is small and the area is not exposed to a lot of force in the mouth.
If the cavity to be filled is large or if it is on a molar and you grind your teeth, a bonded filling may not be your best option. Dr. Blunston will recommend what filling is best for your smile.
At Blunston Dental Group, we use metal-free fillings to contribute to your overall health.
