Perks of Composite Fillings

Are you in need of a filling? Do you know which type could be the best for your situation? If you find yourself asking any of these questions, we’re happy to tell you a little about the benefits of composite fillings.

  1. We understand that a beautiful smile is important—and that many patients don’t like the appearance of metal fillings. Composite fillings on the other hands are designed to match the appearance of your smile. This makes them extremely useful for fillings in the easily visible area of your smile.
  2. If you go to your dentist for a filling, the decay on your tooth will have to be removed before the filling can be placed. Sadly, this usually means that teeth with fillings—or most restorations—could be weaker than natural teeth. Luckily, a composite fillings binds to your tooth and provides additional support.
  3. Before a filling can be placed, a dentist has to remove some amount of bone structure. However, doing so can naturally weaken your tooth somewhat. Fortunately, with composite fillings, less structure needs to be removed than with other types of filling.
