What Are Composite (Tooth-Colored) Fillings?
There are many types of filling materials available, each with advantages and disadvantages. Working together, you and Dr. Prajapati can discuss the best options for restoring your teeth. Composite and silver amalgam fillings are the most widely used in dental restorations today.
Composite fillings are tooth-colored, and we can closely match the color of existing teeth. In general, a composite filling is the most aesthetically suited for use in front teeth or the more visible areas of the teeth. However, you can put a composite filling on any tooth.
Once we place the filling correctly and your child practices good oral hygiene, composite fillings will last five years.
