Composite resins, or tooth-colored fillings, provide durability and resistance to fracture in small to mid-size fillings that need to withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing. They can be used on either front or back teeth. They are a good choice for people who prefer that their teeth look more natural.
SILVER VS. TOOTH-COLORED FILLINGS
No dental work lasts forever. Composites are now used more often than silver for cosmetic reasons and durability. In a society focused on a white, bright smile, people tend to want fillings that blend with their tooth’s natural color.
HOW TO AVOID A FILLING
At Broadway Dental, we ultimately believe that the best filling is none. Prevention is the best medicine. You can dramatically decrease your risk of cavities and other dental diseases simply by:
- Brushing your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste.
- Flossing daily.
- Eating a balanced diet.
- Visiting Broadway Dental regularly.
