Composite Fillings

Tooth Colored Fillings

Dental composite restorations are types of synthetic resins that are used in dentistry as dental fillings or adhesives. These synthetic resins are insoluble, esthetic, insensitive to dehydration, easy to manipulate and reasonably inexpensive.  Dental composite restorations are extremely popular because they are the same color as your natural tooth and typically less tooth structure is removed when prepping the tooth for the restoration.

Many studies have compared the longevity of composite restorations to the longevity of amalgam restorations. Depending on the skill of the dentist, patient characteristics and the type and location of damage, composite restorations can have similar longevity to amalgam restorations.  In comparison to amalgam, the esthetics of composite restorations are far superior.
