Tooth-Colored Restoration “Bonding”
After removal of decay or old silver fillings from the tooth, the filling of choice we recommend is composite. Composites are Tooth-colored fillings that are designed to match the color of your teeth. They are composed of a mixture of glass or quartz filler that provide good durability and resistance to fracture in small- to mid-size restorations that need to withstand moderate pressure from chewing. They can generally be used on either front or back teeth.
Composites are “bonded” or glued to your tooth. This allows us to repair your tooth more conservatively, meaning less tooth structure is removed when the tooth is prepared and more esthetically pleasing restoration of the damaged part of the tooth.
