Composite resins have a lot going for them. Their cosmetic properties, of course, are unsurpassed. By building up the material in layers, and bonding as we go, the filling actually strengthens the tooth structure.
Learning how to place these fillings takes a little practice, even finesse. But we’re happy to say we have done our homework, and achieve consistently strong, good-looking results.
While we don’t advocate replacing perfectly good amalgam restorations, we will consider, for the right candidate, placing composite resins when your silver filling begins to lose function.
