Composite Restoration (Tooth-Colored Filling)
There are many advantages to composite fillings. They are a natural tooth color which allows them to become essentially invisible. They require smaller preparation, which means less tooth structure is removed. Composites can release fluoride to strengthen the tooth to prevent future decay. In addition, tooth-colored fillings are compatible with dental sealants. A tooth can be filled and sealed at the same time to provide extra decay protection.
