The development of cavities in your teeth can be a painful process and must be dealt with. Unfortunately you will have little choice but to have a filling put in place to shore up the hole or holes that have appeared in your teeth. This is to ensure that the nerves inside are not interfered with and infection cannot take hold.
What you do have a choice about, however, is the type of filling which you opt for. Or many years now the only option has been metal fillings which look unsightly in the mouth. Thanks to advances in technology your fillings no longer have to be the colour of dark metal because scientists have found a way to construct fillings that are white and so fit in with the colour of the rest of your teeth.
Using white resin to fill cavities is an awful lot safer than metal fillings which attracted controversy over the years and could be notoriously difficult to fit. The resin is incredibly durable and is now extensively utilised to fill in cracks in teeth which have been damaged in that way too. It is incredibly adaptable too and your dentist will be able to match it to the colour of your surrounding teeth, even taking into account the subtleties of shading and texture.
If you already have metal fillings and are becoming sick of the sight of them in your mouth, you can even have them replaced by white fillings to give you greater peace of mind in social situations. Next time you see your City of Leeds dentist be sure to ask them for all the information about white fillings and how they can improve your smile.
