Tooth-colored fillings provide good durability and resistance to fractures in small- to mid-size cavities that need to withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing. They can be used on either front or back teeth and are a good choice for people who prefer that their fillings look more natural. Tooth-colored fillings are mercury free and an obvious improvement over unsightly silver amalgam fillings. It is a safe, affordable, and attractive solution for many dental problems.
If cavities are left untreated, they will continue to grow in the tooth, becoming larger and larger. If they become too large, a crown and possibly a root canal may be necessary. It is in the patients best interest to catch cavities early on, so that the dentist can treat them as fillings.
