If you ever have cavities, there are a few options to choose from. Although dental amalgams can provide extreme durability for years to come, they cannot match the aesthetics and charm that our tooth-colored composite fillings can provide. If you are considering filling out your smile with tooth-colored composite fillings, here are some of the benefits you will enjoy:

– Composite fillings can repair cavities that are too tiny for dental amalgams to work effectively.

– Composite fillings are mercury-free, which is a necessity for those who may be allergic to mercury.

– Composites do not need to be extracted if they go bad, as they can be repaired easily without the need to remove the originals.

– Teeth can still suffer damage with composites, but because composites are made of a hard, durable resin-based material, they help the teeth become more preventative of damage.

– With the proper care, composites can easily last up to ten years.

– Composite fillings are crafted to blend with the natural aesthetics of your teeth.
