Boston Dental - Dr. Dan Boston General Dentistry
When a tooth has been deformed by decay, cracks, etc, it is repaired using a composite (tooth colored) filling. A composite filling blends in with the natural color of your teeth, restoring the beauty of your smile. First, the decayed or affected portion of the tooth is removed and then filled with a composite filling. There are many types of filling materials available, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. Our talented staff at Boston Dental can help you to choose the best option for your composite filling.
The most common types of fillings are composite fillings and also silver amalgam fillings. Composite fillings blend in with the color of your teeth and are thus more aesthetically pleasing to most patients. As with most dental restorations, composite fillings are not permanent and will eventually need to be replaced. However, they are very durable and will provide you with a beautiful smile for many years.
