Can your teeth develop cavities with you knowing about them? Often, cavities form before we can feel their effects, thus making it too late to prevent them from damaging your enamel. However, with dental fillings such as dental composites and dental amalgams, cavities can be treated and removed.

Listed below are a few spectacular benefits that dental fillings can provide for your smile:

– Mercury is used to keep the metals together in dental amalgams. Due to its controversial nature, some would prefer to forgo the use of mercury, and instead, stick to dental composites for their fillings, as they are mercury-free.

– If you are looking for a natural-looking filling, composites are the better choice, as dental composites can be color-matched to your teeth for a more expected look.

– For large cavities, dental amalgams tend to work best, and for smaller cavities, dental composites can do the job successfully.

– If a dental amalgam becomes damaged it will need to be removed before it is replaced, but with composites, the original filling can be altered many times over.
