When considering tooth fillings, one of the options available are composite fillings. They are made from a durable composite that are similar in color to natural teeth. Due to the tooth coloring of the composite fillings, they resemble a natural look and are less noticeable in comparison 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 thus preventing further decay.
There are other advantages to composite, tooth-colored fillings such as, their ability to bond to tooth structures.
Also, in many cases, these fillings can be repaired by the addition of more composite material.
