Choices to Make When a Filling Comes Loose

Posted on 11/10/2016 by Fady Ebid

When you notice that a filling has come loose, you need to go in and see your dentist.

They need to either take your old filling and put it back in, or they need to create a new filling for your cavity.

If you have an older style of filling, you may want to consider getting a new composite filling to replace the filling that came loose. It will give you a better look, and it should last longer than your old filling.

Why Choosing a Composite Filling May Be Your Best Option

A composite filling is basically the same basic thing as any other filling, but the materials it is made out of differ, as does its color. Composite fillings are made of different materials, including glass and tooth-colored plastic.

This allows it to remain very strong when used on teeth that you chew with regularly. Plus, the color of a composite filling can be matched to the color of the tooth that you are filling, allowing you to have a cohesive look. This can help to boost your confidence, and give your smile a more youthful appearance.

Composite fillings are a great way to keep your teeth healthy even after a cavity, and to keep your smile looking great. The stronger your fillings are, the stronger your teeth can remain, and the less likely you are to have any issues where your old cavity begins to decay again.

Talk to your dentist about going with a composite filling the next time you need a new filling, or the next time you notice one of your older fillings has come loose. It can help your smile look better, younger, and brighter all with one simple replacement. Call our office today if you have a loose filling!
