What are composite restorations (a.k.a. tooth colored fillings)?
Composite restorations, also known as white or tooth colored fillings, are an important tool in achieving a cosmetic smile.
How does this procedure work?
Composite restorations are a resin filling material that can be bonded directly to the tooth and mimic the natural colors of teeth making them nearly invisible. Composite restorations come in a wide range of shades and colors which allow us to match your tooth color making the filling blend in and disappear in your smile. Also because composite resin can be glued (bonded) directly to the tooth surface, we can use this white filling material to change the shape of chipped, deformed, or crooked teeth.
