Composite Filling (Tooth-Coloured Fillings)
When considering tooth fillings, one of the options available is composite fillings; which are made from durable plastics that are similar in colour to natural teeth. Because the composite fillings are tooth-coloured, they look more natural and are less noticeable compared to other types of fillings.
Another benefit of tooth-coloured fillings is that they are compatible with sealants, allowing your dentist to perform both procedures in a single sitting and thus preventing further decay. There are other advantages to composite, tooth-coloured fillings such as, most importantly, its ability to bond to tooth structures. Also, in many cases these fillings can be repaired by the addition of more composite material.
