Tooth Colored Fillings
“ Composite resin ” fillings are
an aesthetic, lasting, alternative to traditional silver/mercury amalgam fillings. These are tooth colored and bonded to the surrounding tooth structure making them suitable for front and back teeth.
Teeth filled with “composite resin” tend to be stronger as it bonds to the surrounding tooth, while a tooth filled with amalgam may be weaker and result in cracking of the remaining tooth structure.
