Composite restorations, or natural looking, tooth colored fillings, are used when there is small to moderate decay present. Unlike traditional amalgam (silver) restorations, composites bond to your tooth, which allows us to keep more natural, healthy tooth structure. Bonding to the tooth also makes composites stronger than amalgams and protects the tooth from fracture.
Modern composite materials come in a wide range of colors, allowing us to create a virtually invisible restoration by blending the restoration into the natural color of the tooth. We only use composite restorations as we feel that this material is superior to amalgams
