Also known as composite fillings, tooth-colored fillings are made using a mixture of quartz or glass filler in a resin medium. Tooth-colored fillings are preferred for their natural appearance, able to be shaded to match your surrounding tooth and create a seamless restoration. Composite resin also chemically bonds to the tooth, completely sealing the cracks, fractures, and cavities; they allow your teeth to be stronger after a single procedure.
Tooth-colored fillings are specifically designed to endure moderate chewing pressure and are highly durable. Because they are metal-free, tooth-colored fillings do not crack or cause the tooth to darken over time. This makes them the ideal choice for repairing teeth that are visible when you speak or smile.
