Composite Fillings

Dental composite fillings are types of synthetic resins which are used in dentistry as restorative material or adhesive. They have evolved as restorative materials since they are insoluble, aesthetic, insensitive to dehydration, easy to manipulate and reasonably inexpensive. Their physical properties can be designed changing the amount and type of components used. Unlike amalgam which essentially just fills a hole, composite cavity restorations restore the tooth back to near its original physical integrity.

There are many types of filling materials available. You can discuss with your dentist which one is the best option for restoring your teeth. Composite fillings can be matched with the color of your teeth particularly in visible areas.
