At Precision Cosmetic Family Dentistry we offer resin composite fillings to our patients. No amalgam is used at our office so that we can provide cosmetically pleasing dental fillings to our patients. Resin composite fillings are made out of a resin bonded compound that mimics the appearance of natural tooth structure and blends right in with the surrounding tooth. They are also referred to “white” fillings or “tooth colored” fillings.
One of the most noticeable advantages to resin composite fillings is the matching appearance, but they also bond easily to the surface of the tooth, and help preserve a maximum amount of tooth structure which means less drilling is required. Resin composite fillings usually have a life span of about five years.
