The Perks of Tooth-Colored Fillings

Tooth-colored fillings use a material called composite. This material starts as a liquid resin which can be matched closely to the color of your teeth.

The result is a stunning restoration which enhances your smile and doesn’t detract from it as metal fillings can.

These are just a few of the benefits of tooth-colored fillings:

  • Natural beauty, because tooth-colored fillings blend in with your smile and are virtually undetectable.
  • Quick results, because tooth-colored fillings can be completed in one appointment.
