Dental fillings are used to restore teeth to function and restore aesthetics after decay, cavity or tooth fracture.
It used to be that cavities could only be filled with unsightly metal fillings. Fortunately, advances in dental material and techniques allow dentists to repair cavities using modern tooth colored fillings.
Tooth colored fillings are composed of composite plastics and resins that can exactly mimic the natural color and texture of teeth. And unlike metal fillings, tooth colored fillings are free of mercury and amalgam and bond directly to the tooth, making them both durable and easy to apply.
