Composite Fillings (tooth-colored fillings)
When considering tooth fillings, one of the options available are composite fillings which are made from durable plastics that are similar in color to natural teeth. Because the composite fillings are tooth-colored, they look more natural and are less noticeable compared to other types of fillings.
Another benefit of tooth-colored fillings is that they are compatible with sealants allowing your dentist to perform both procedures in a single sitting preventing further decay. There are other advantages to composite, tooth-colored fillings, most importantly the capability of bonding to tooth structure. Also in many cases they can be repaired by addition of more composite material.
Dr. Alsaadi is always focused on providing the most conservative treatment necessary thus he uses Composite fillings vs. the old amalgam fillings which require removal of more tooth structure and thus weaken the tooth in the long run.
