Composite fillings these days are also made to match the same colour as your teeth so they definitely look much more aesthetically pleasing than the old silver amalgam fillings. There are many other benefits to having a composite filling.
Composite fillings actually bind the tooth structure so this means that less preparation is required to secure the filling.
With a composite filling, the material is inserted into the prepared tooth (similar to the way amalgam fillings were inserted). This straightforward procedure only requires one visit.
Composite fillings are therefore more resilient and more aesthetically pleasing – ensuring you have a beautiful smile with string, restored teeth.
There are many circumstances where a composite or porcelain restoration is more suitable for you than an amalgam filling and Ian is very happy to explain these circumstances to you.
