What Are Dental Fillings For?
Composite resin fills the hole or cavity left behind by decay without marring the appearance of your smile. These tooth colored, white, or composite fillings provide an esthetic, biocompatible alternative to the silver (amalgam) fillings that have been used for decades.
Unlike silver fillings, the tooth colored material comes with a precise color-matching guide to ensure the filling blends perfectly with your surrounding tooth enamel. Composite resin is also highly resistant to heat and cold, dries within minutes under a special light, and actually restores much of the original strength of the affected tooth.
Your dentist at DentalCares can fill new cavities, replace old silver fillings, or make minor cosmetic improvements to the teeth that show when you smile using tooth colored composite resin.
