#1 – benefit 1

Fillings are done to restore tooth structure that has been lost from decay or trauma. Composite fillings are the same color as teeth. Therefore the filling is almost invisible. It is simple treatment that stops teeth damage that can lead to  more invasive and challenging restorative options or even lead to the possibility of the teeth being lost.

Some of the most common reason for tooth damage is poor oral hygiene from the lack of daily brushing and flossing. Food and sugar left that are not cleaned off can cause cavities.

Sometimes biting and heavy grinding can wear off teeth. An individual may have lots of acid in their diet or who over brushes may use fillings to protect your teeth.

Bonding restores broken, chipped teeth and closes small gaps to improve overall tooth appearances. It is a easy and simple treatment to fix a smile that has been impaired.
