Cosmetic Dentistry – Composite Resin Fillings
Most of us have had amalgam fillings (silver) or gold filling restorations. Some amalgam fillings are called mercury fillings, as some amalgam fillings contained mercury. Metal fillings were effective, but very conspicuous and tended 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. Tooth fillings colored to look like a natural tooth are known as Composite Resin Dental Fillings, and are made of a plastic dental resin. Composite Resin Dental Fillings are strong, durable, and make for a very natural looking smile. They also help to bond teeth together from the inside aiding in the prevention of tooth fractures.
