We prefer to use a composite resin filling that can match your other teeth perfectly in color, making the filling undetectable. It is softer to work with than metal amalgams and can be molded to correct crooked, damaged and fractured teeth. The shape of the tooth can be changed, lining it up with the rest of the teeth. It is durable, strong and has more give, to expand and contract with different food temperatures and less likely to crack.
There is far less drilling as well, as we don’t need to enlarge the tooth cavity in order to place the material. The bonding procedure will hold the resin in the tooth and strengthen it.
The improved aesthetics of the composites make your mouth naturally beautiful and will keep you smiling – even in your sleep!
