Did you know cavities can destroy your teeth? Not only can cavities destroy your teeth, they can also lead to other harmful effects like gum disease and eventual tooth loss. That is why it is vital to take care of your teeth and have your cavities restored with composite fillings. Hansen Dental Care would like to provide you with some interesting facts about composite fillings and how they can help your smile:
- Composite fillings do not contain any mercury.
- Due to the materials used in crafting composite fillings, they can be colored to match your natural tooth color.
- In some cases, cavities are too small for traditional amalgam fillings to work. Composite fillings can now be used to fill those cavities.
- Composite fillings can last up to a decade.
- If your original composite filling needs to be repaired, it can now be done without the need to remove the original filling.
If you have a cavity that needs to be filled, Hansen Dental Care can offer you the very best of composite fillings. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Robert E. Hansen Jr., DDS, we invite you to call us at 626-793-2273, or you can set up an appointment at our office in Pasadena, California. We are excited to help you restore your confident smile!
