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 fillings that are made of a resin bonded compound. Because resin composite fillings mimic the appearance of natural tooth structure they blend right in. They are also referred to “white fillings” or “tooth colored” fillings.
There are several advantages to resin composite fillings such as appearance, they also bond easily to the surface of the tooth, and preserve maximum amount of tooth structure which means less drilling is required. Resin composite fillings usually have a life span of about five years.
