Cavities can happen to anyone, even those with perfect dental hygiene habits. But while a small cavity is nothing to get too worked up about, it should be addressed ASAP. Left undiagnosed and untreated, bacteria and decay can travel deeper into your tooth. This can result in you needing a crown, root canal, or even an extraction.

Why tooth-coloured fillings? What are its advantages?
There are many advantages of tooth-coloured fillings, besides how great they look in your mouth.
Require less tooth preparation
Are smaller than metal fillings
Are free of metals and mercury
Can be placed on any tooth
Because composite bonds directly to your tooth structure, these fillings preserve as much tooth enamel as possible. Rather than cutting a wedge into your tooth to secure a metal filling in place, composite fillings are bonded directly over the area where decay has been removed.
Time to Replace Your Metal Fillings
If you have old metal fillings, you can choose to have them replaced with tooth-coloured fillings that look and feel better. Do you see dark grey or blue areas on your teeth when you smile? Then it might be time to see if your old fillings are beginning to leak.
