Let’s face it; certain items were made with the idea that they would work better if used with something else. Imagine a plate or a cup without the food or a beverage to fill them…what would be the point? Peanut butter is great on its own, but when you add jelly, it helps make for the ultimate sandwich experience. Everyone and everything needs a little help sometimes. This is especially true when it comes our teeth.
When properly and regularly brushed, flossed and examined by an Ottawa dental professional, your teeth are able to look and be the healthiest they can be. However, we put our teeth through a lot on a daily basis, which can sometimes leave them vulnerable to certain issues. Regardless of how attentive you are to the hygiene of your mouth, you can still be susceptible to certain dental issues.
In the event of one of these situations arising (a pesky cavity rears its ugly head) there are various treatment options. The most natural looking and strong filling is the white resin filling. A resin filling is a blend of plastic and glass components to be applied to the affect decaying tooth. Resin composites are also used to help reshape damaged teeth or brighten discoloured ones.
Here are some of the benefits of white resin fillings:
- They provide a natural look
- Helps strengthen the teeth they are applied to
- Very durable and can be colour matched to the rest of your teeth
Of course there are other options when it comes to helping to rebuild decaying teeth but white resin fillings are one of the best choices. Consult with your local Ottawa dental professional if you have any questions or concerns.
