Teeth Restoration in Liverpool, NY
Fillings are one of the most common restorative dentistry services. Everyone is likely to encounter a cavity at one time or another, and a cavity is usually a minor problem – if you have it treated. Cavities can become serious if they are not filled, but we offer gentle, convenient fillings at Today's Dentistry where Dr. Pateras provides metal-free composite fillings.
What are Composite Fillings?
Composite fillings are sometimes called white fillings. In contrast to traditional silver amalgam fillings, composite fillings are made of tooth-colored dental composite. These fillings are comparable in strength and durability to amalgam fillings but contain no metal and blend in nicely with the surrounding tooth. A composite filling is a much more esthetic restoration than an amalgam filling.
How Long Do Composite Fillings Last?
A composite filling typically lasts for many years, but the exact lifespan depends on factors like your oral hygiene and dietary habits.
