Tooth-Colored Fillings, Composite Resin Restorations, Composites
Dentist’s Approach: Family Dental Group has a dental specialist (Prosthodontist) and top flight Cosmetic Dentists for this procedure on our team. We routinely place only mercury-free, metal-free fillings (bonded composite resins) and Porcelain Veneers, and we primarily use metal-free porcelain crowns.
When considering tooth fillings, one of the options available are composite fillings which are made from durable plastics that are similar in color to natural teeth. Because the composite fillings are tooth-colored, they look more natural and are less noticeable compared to other types of fillings.
Another benefit of tooth-colored fillings is that they are compatible with sealants allowing your dentist to perform both procedures in a single sitting preventing further decay. There are other advantages to composite, tooth-colored fillings, most importantly the capability of bonding to tooth structure. Also in many cases they can be repaired by addition of more composite material.
Speak with one of our doctors to find out which kind of filling is best for you.
