Signs you may have a cavity
When treating a cavity, the dentist will remove the decayed portion of your tooth and fill it with another substance.
This procedure is called a filling. There are multiple options for the material to be used in the filling,
the most common of which are composite fillings and amalgam fillings.
A composite filling, also known as a tooth colored filling, uses material which can be closely matched to the color of your teeth.
Composite fillings provide good durability for small to medium cavities, and the procedure typically involves removing less of a tooth than you would during an amalgam filling.
They are also particularly well suited for treating front or highly visible teeth because of their natural look.
At Tooth Angels, we prefer tooth coloured fillings as it is aesthetically more pleasing, and they are available in a variety of material.
