Composite Tooth Coloured Fillings
When your dentist tells you that you need 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 act as sealants, allowing your dentist to help preventing further decay, especially where you have deep grooves already. There are other advantages to composite, tooth-coloured fillings such as, most importantly, their ability to bond to tooth structures. Also, in many cases these fillings can be repaired by the addition of more composite material.
