One of the most frequent dental treatments is fillings. Firstly, decay is a common condition and occurs almost very often. Secondly, the treatment is not costly yet useful in restoring teeth after cavity removal. Fillings become a vital treatment to keep the decay from spreading into the nerve canal.
There are various types of fillings available. Back in the day, dentists used mercury amalgam fillings to treat a cavity. But in the present day, people prefer composite fillings or white fillings as commonly termed. White fillings have earned preference with patients because of their aesthetic finish. It can go unnoticeable as it matches with the tooth color.

If you know a cavity treatment, you will know that it involves removing decay from the tooth. This treatment ensures oral health yet leaves the tooth exposed to decay in the future again. That’s where fillings come into play. Fillings help in restoring the structure and strength of the treated tooth after cavity treatment.
You may further need to advance the treatment with the fitting of pre-formed filling called onlay or inlay. The dentist may advise fitting a crown after root canal treatment. The crown helps in protecting the tooth with a ceramic cap or casing.
Here are some valid reasons why most customers prefer white fillings.
White fillings also match with the sheen of the tooth along with the color. After hardening the resin, the dentist can polish it to cohere with the natural tooth’s brilliance. This procedure helps give the result a natural finish.
