Among the most common dental issues these days is tooth decay. Here at the Sierra Springs Dental, once we discover any evidence of cavity during your dental check-ups we will most likely recommend that you get tooth colored fillings. Unlike silver amalgam, tooth colored fillings are made from composite resin.
Resin materials help make the filling blend more naturally with your tooth color. The advantage of this is that it won't look like you have a filling. Another perk of tooth coloured fillings is that they are durable and bond quite strongly to the structure of your tooth. This helps restore your tooth's original structural integrity. Since the filling easily bonds to the tooth, less of the healthy tooth are removed by the drill, which helps save most of your teeth.
