Despite advances in preventive dental care, cavities remain a common dental issue for both adults and children. Caught early, cavities can be treated fairly easily with dental fillings. Ideally, it’s best to avoid problems with decay by observing good oral care habits and scheduling routine dental cleanings with your dentist. If you do get a cavity, you can turn to Natalie K. Provenzano DDS, Inc. in San Jose, for a composite tooth cavity filling. Composite fillings offer a durable, long-lasting solution to treating cavities.
Most people are familiar with silver amalgam fillings as they were used extensively in the past to treat cavities.

With good oral hygiene and care, composite fillings can last up to 10 years before needing to be replaced. A healthy diet and lifestyle can help extend the lifespan of your filling and improve your oral health.
