If you have a tooth that has a cavity or an old filling that needs to be replaced, a natural-looking white restoration can be a beautiful option. These fillings are called composite restorations and have several advantages over silver fillings:
*They are bonded to your tooth, making it stronger than if a silver filling was used.
*Less tooth needs to be removed when cleaning the decay for the filling to be placed.
*The bonding agent can insulate your tooth from hot and cold sensitivity.
*They look like your natural teeth.
