If you have decay or dark fillings, you may be a good candidate for tooth-colored, composite resin fillings. They can restore teeth to an attractive, healthy state, while offering several advantages over traditional amalgam fillings. Because composite resins are not made of metal, we can blend and mix shades to find the perfect color to match your natural teeth. Another pro is the strength of the bond between your tooth and the composite material. This actually supports the remaining tooth structure, deters breakage, and insulates against temperature changes. Best of all, composite resins allow us to keep more of your natural tooth structure intact.
