Composite Fillings Blend in With Your Natural Teeth
One of our patients’ favorite benefits of mercury-free composite fillings is the superior aesthetic results they get in comparison to traditional silver amalgam fillings. Composite fillings are made to match your tooth’s natural color so they blend in and are less noticeable. This makes them a favorite choice for cavities found on teeth that are visible when you smile, laugh, or talk.
Bonded Composite Fillings Make Teeth Stronger
Unlike silver fillings, which sit inside a pocket in your tooth, composite fillings chemically bond to your tooth’s structure and provide the support that makes your natural tooth stronger. This support can help prevent future decay and help provide support to weaker parts of your tooth so that more of your natural tooth can be maintained and preserved.
Composite Fillings Require Less Drilling
The unique bonding process that provides support and strength to your teeth also means that less drilling is required for a composite filling. This more conservative preparation keeps more of your tooth’s natural structure intact because the filling sits neatly inside the tooth, not on an entire side or surface as is the case with silver amalgam fillings.
