Cosmetic Dentistry — Composite Resin Fillings

Many of us have had amalgam fillings (silver) or gold filling restorations. Some amalgam fillings are called mercury fillings, as some amalgam fillings contain mercury. Metal fillings are effective but very conspicuous and tend to blacken in color over time. They also commonly crack teeth.

Composite resin dental fillings were created as an alternative to traditional metal dental fillings. These tooth fillings are colored to look like a natural tooth and are made of a plastic dental resin. Composite resin dental fillings are h2 and durable and make for a very natural-looking smile. They also help bond teeth together from the inside, aiding in the prevention of tooth fractures.
