A composite filling used to restore a decayed tooth is carefully matched to your tooth color by our dentist, giving your pearls – great look and added confidence to your smile.
Tooth colored restorations or fillings are also referred to as composites, because they are composed of a complex molecular structure of a resin matrix and fillers.
Tooth colored fillings now are harder and more comparable to silver/amalgam restorations. A small filling could conceivably last a lifetime, and larger fillings can be expected to last many years. The factors that determine the lifespan of a particular filling include: the tooth size of the filling relative to the tooth and how teeth are cleaned and maintained daily.
