Long ago, amalgams or “silver” fillings were the standard of care in dentistry. Newer reliable materials, such as composites, allow for a more esthetic smile-enhancing result. Thanks to years of dental research driven largely by patient’s desire for more beautiful smiles, composite resins now serve as an excellent option for replacement of missing tooth structure.
Composite fillings are a mixture of glass or quartz filler in a resin medium that produces a tooth-colored filling that actually bonds to the tooth. They are sometimes referred to as composites or bonded-resins. These restorations provide good durability and resistance to fracture in small to mid-sized restorations that need to withstand moderate chewing pressure.
