Over the course of the years, tooth colored fillings have become increasing popular due to their aesthetic appeal. Several scientific and clinical studies show that these fillings are visually superior. What’s more, composite fillings are long lasting, durable and safe.
This composite has natural qualities like that of the tooth structure. Composite is sturdy and translucent and helps strengthen teeth that have cavities. The preference of composite over silver-colored amalgam is due to its superior aesthetics.
There are 2 main reasons why tooth fillings may be used. One for filling a cavity, and another for, restorations, which fix chipping or decay. In either case, the tooth is first prepared under local anesthesia. Adding the composite material completes the restoration process. This procedure usually takes one visit.
