White composite fillings can be tinted to match any tooth color and form a natural bond with the existing tooth in a way that metal fillings never could. Patients no longer have to tolerate the unsightliness of silver fillings.
The composite material looks better, does not discolor, bonds more readily to tooth surfaces and increases the strength and resilience of the remaining tooth material. This means teeth with large fillings look better and are less likely to crack or deteriorate later in life. Additionally, composite fillings require removal of less tooth structure than the traditional silver amalgam filling, thereby keeping your tooth as strong as possible.
