Tooth Colored Fillings
Tooth colored fillings, often referred to as composite fillings, are the safe alternative to silver amalgam fillings.
Advantages of Tooth Colored Fillings
- Custom made to the exact color and contour of your natural teeth which makes the filling more natural and less noticeable.
- Provide a safe alternative to leaking silver fillings which contain mercury.
- Composite resin is actually bonded to the tooth which creates additional insulation reducing sensitivity to temperature changes.
- The bond created by the resin material provides internal support, unlike unsightly metal restorations which tend to drive a metal wedge between the tooth contributing to cracks and fractures.
