Tooth colour fillings
Composite or tooth-colored 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. Less tooth structure is removed when the dentist prepares the tooth, and this may result in a smaller filling
than that of an amalgam. Composites can also be "bonded" or adhesively held in a cavity, often allowing the dentist to make a more conservative
repair to the tooth.
