White composite fillings
Despite good oral hygiene, there are still many problems that can affect your teeth. Dental fillings are a common procedure that is necessary amongst most adults at least once in their lifetime. Fillings are required when your tooth may be infected or decaying. Fillings involve the tooth being cleaned out and refilled with specialist dental filler. Traditionally dental fillings are made of mercury, silver, tin, copper and zinc and therefore they have a silver appearance and are known as amalgam fillings. Amalgam fillings are a very effective form of dental fillings however they are highly visible in your mouth. Over the last few decades with the growth in popularity of cosmetic dentistry, white composite fillings have become an increasingly popular alternative to traditional silver fillings. Speak to your dentist to find out about composite fillings to help treat your tooth decay or to replace your amalgam fillings. They are designed to be subtle, discreet and blend in with your natural dentition as they are specifically coloured to match the surrounding teeth.
Root canal treatment
If left untreated then tooth decay can result in infection of the dental pulp which is found in the centre of your tooth and contains the nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue for that tooth. If this is left untreated it can result in tooth loss and bone decay, therefore it is vital to visit your dentist on a regular basis to make sure that your teeth are clean and healthy and to prevent such dental issues. Infections of the dental pulp require root canal treatment which is another common procedure. This is carried out by removing the infected pulp from inside the tooth, cleaning and disinfecting the hole created in the tooth then filling and sealing the area to help prevent any further reinfection.
