At our practice, we understand the importance of providing you with the most effective and advanced dental treatments available. That is why we are excited to introduce you to the benefits of composite fillings.

Restore Your Smile with Natural-Looking Composite Fillings

Composite fillings, also known as tooth-colored or white fillings, are a popular choice for repairing teeth that have been damaged by decay or trauma. Unlike traditional silver amalgam fillings, composite fillings are made from a mixture of tooth-colored resin and glass particles, allowing them to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth.

Benefits of Composite Dental Fillings

Composite fillings bond directly to your tooth. This means that less drilling is required compared to amalgam fillings, resulting in the preservation of more healthy tooth tissue. Additionally, composite fillings require less removal of enamel, which helps to maintain the strength and integrity of the tooth.

Another benefit of composite fillings is their versatility. Not only can they be used to repair cavities, but they can also be used to repair chipped, cracked or worn teeth, as well as to close gaps between teeth and reshape teeth for a more uniform appearance. This versatility allows us to address a wide range of dental concerns while providing you with natural-looking results.

Composite fillings are also a safe and durable option for restoring your smile. They are free of mercury, which is a concern for some patients with silver amalgam fillings. Additionally, composite fillings are less prone to expansion and contraction due to temperature changes, reducing the risk of damage to the tooth over time.
