Tooth-colored restorations are referred to as composites because they are composed of a resin matrix and fillers. Composites or resins have undergone continual improvements in durability, stability, and esthetic properties. Tooth-colored restorations are bonded to tooth structures as opposed to amalgam metal restorations that are locked into the tooth. Tooth-colored restorations come in a variety of shades to match your tooth, so they will look and feel just like your tooth. These restorations are strong, tough, and will last a long time if properly taken care of. At Pahlavani Dental we only offer tooth-colored composite restorations.
There are many advantages to using resin composite fillings. It matches natural tooth color and also helps prevent the breakage of natural tooth structure, unlike metal fillings. Resin composite fillings, also minimize the risk of allergic reactions to alloys.
