Tooth Coloured Fillings
TOOTH COLOURED FILLINGS
Composite resin fillings are the most widely used tooth-coloured fillings. These fillings are strong, bond well to the teeth, provide a good seal, and insulate the teeth against temperature changes. They are also very aesthetic and can be polished to a perfect shine. Composite fillings can be placed on the front as well as the back teeth.
Most people now a days prefer composite fillings as they merge so well with the natural tooth structure. The procedure to place this filling is technique sensitive and takes longer than it does to do a silver filling but the results are both aesthetic and durable.
