Advantages of Tooth-Colored Restorations
There are many advantages to tooth-colored restorations. Resin fillings are bonded to the teeth creating a tight, strong fit to the natural tooth. Such restorations can be used in instances where much of the tooth structure has been lost. The tooth remains intact and strong.
Small areas of decay can be restored without removing too much tooth structure in comparison to fillings done with amalgam (silver).
Some resins used in tooth-colored restorations contain fluoride this can help prevent decay.
The result is a beautiful smile!
