Long-Lasting and Attractive ‘White’ Fillings

Composite Fillings are also known as “white fillings”.

Composite fillings are a mixture of glass or quartz filler in a resin medium that produces a tooth-colored filling. They are sometimes referred to as composites or filled resins.

Composite fillings provide good durability and resistance to fracture in small-to-mid size restorations that need to withstand moderate chewing pressure.

Composites have huge advantages over silver fillings. Since silver does not stick to teeth, entirely healthy tooth structure is usually removed to keep a silver filling in place.

Composites permit your cosmetic dentist to remove only the decayed area of your tooth. Unlike silver fillings, composite fillings expand just like your teeth and are much less likely to cause cracks in your tooth.

Also amalgam/ silver fillings last about seven years, while composites last about seven to eleven years.

Yelp Review

 

Geneyem B. – 5 star
“I love this dentist. They are so good and gentle. My whole family goes here and my girls (who are 7 and 5) love it here. They know our names, there’s never a long wait, and they are gentle with our treatments. Dr. Marin is a very good dentist. He explains everything thoroughly and my girls trust him while he does their treatment. I would recommend this dentist too anyone who is looking for one.”
