Composite and White Colored Fillings

A composite resin is a tooth-colored plastic mixture filled will glass (silicon dioxide). Composites are not only used to restore decayed areas, but are also used for cosmetic improvements by changing the color or shape of the teeth. After the preparation of the tooth, the composite restorations are bonded to the tooth, which allows for smaller amounts of tooth structure to be removed during the filling preparation, and then hardened with a special bonding light. Bonded fillings help to support the remaining tooth, which prevents future breakage and insulates the tooth from excessive temperature changes. The color is matched to the tooth and looks like it has never had any filling. Studies have shown that composites last 7-10 years, which is comparable to silver fillings.
