There are many types of filling materials available, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. We will discuss with you the best options for restoring your teeth.
Composite fillings, along with silver amalgam fillings, are the most widely used today.
Depending on the area of decay or the size of the existing filling some teeth can be restored with bonded composite (plastic) resin filling. Composite fillings are tooth colour and can be closely matched to the colour of existing teeth are more aesthetically suited for use in front teeth or the more visible areas of the teeth. They look better, are durable and bonded to the tooth structure so they provide a measure of support and strength for the restored tooth. They are often smaller and more conservative than other fillings materials because only the decayed portion needs to be eliminated. This helps to preserve the tooth structure for years to come.
