When you are considering tooth fillings, one of the best options available is dental composite fillings which are made from durable plastics that are similar in color and strength to natural teeth. Because the composite fillings are tooth-colored, they look much more natural and are less noticeable compared to other types of olden fillings such as silver.
Another benefit of these tooth-colored fillings is that they are compatible with sealants, thereby allowing your dentist to perform both procedures in a single sitting and thus preventing further decay. There are other advantages to composite, tooth-colored fillings such as, most importantly, its ability to bond to tooth structures. Also, in many cases these fillings can be repaired by the addition of more composite material without removing the old filling.
