What are Composite Resins?

Composite resins, or tooth-colored fillings, are probably the most popular type of restoration material available today, due to their more natural look. This material tends to be  more easy to manipulate, plus they are insoluble, insensitive to dehydration, and are fairly inexpensive when compared to other materials.

Advantages of Composite Resins for Fillings

Dental composite resins offer a number of advantages over traditional silver fillings.  In addition to the properties already mentioned,  the tooth/composite bond actually supports the remaining tooth structure, keeping more of this structure intact than amalgams.  This is a benefit because we believe that  the more natural tooth structure you keep, the better teeth you’ll likely have in the future.
