At our Shelby Township dental office, we place only composite fillings. Composite fillings are a mixture of resin and finely ground glass-like particles that result in a tooth colored restoration. They are durable and resistant to fracture and the procedures can be completed during the same visit. Composite fillings can be matched to the color of your teeth, making them virtually invisible.
Additional benefits of tooth restorations using composite fillings include:
Prevents further tooth decay
Maintains existing tooth structure
Maintains structural integrity of affected tooth
Prevents bone loss due to tooth extraction
