There are many types of filling materials available (i.e. silver, composite, gold, and porcelain), each with their own advantages and disadvantages. We can discuss the best options for restoring your teeth.
Bonded or composite fillings are tooth-colored, can be closely matched to the color of existing teeth, and are more aesthetically suited for use in front teeth or the more visible area of the teeth.
Bonding is the process in which tooth-colored materials (composite resin or white fillings) are adhered (bonded) to the tooth. This is a procedure that can be used to repair or improve the appearance of a tooth that has been badly decayed, stained, broken, fractured, chipped, or cracked.
As with most dental restorations, composite fillings are not permanent and may someday have to be replaced. They are very durable, and will last many years, giving you a long lasting, beautiful smile.
