Home / Composite Fillings
Have decay, a hole in your tooth? Need a tooth colored filling?
Tooth colored fillings are made from a mixture of glass or quartz filler. They are chemically bonded to the teeth (versus silver fillings that are retentively placed into the tooth and can leak over time). Since they can be adhered to your teeth they are more conservative than silver fillings. In other words, less tooth structure needs to be removed. They are a long term solution for small-to-mid size cavities that are subject to moderate chewing pressure.
