Tooth-colored fillings, also referred to as composite fillings, are realistic looking dental fillings used to protect teeth that have been damaged by cavities. As a natural-looking alternative to dental amalgams, composite fillings are noted to work best for small and mid-size cavities.

Composite fillings can save your smile from the ravages of cavities in only a minimal amount of time in our office of Taylor Family Dentistry. To learn more about what composite fillings can do for you, consider the following:

– Typically, composite fillings can last upwards of a decade.
– Composite fillings are extremely durable and more resistant to cracking in smaller cavities than dental amalgams.
– Composite fillings do not contain mercury, which some people may be allergic to.
– If your composite fillings ever need to be repaired, the original fillings do not need to be removed.
– Composite fillings can be used on front teeth and back teeth.
– Dental veneers are completely customizable and designed for – If you are seeking a more natural-looking filling, composites have the added benefit of matching the colors of your teeth so they can blend in with your natural teeth.
