White Composite Tooth Fillings Are Durable and Will Last For Many Years!Tooth-colored composite fillings are a safer and more attractive alternative to older silver amalgam fillings. By precisely matching tooth-colored composite fillings with the natural color of your teeth, Dr. Shimizu is able to provide you with white fillings that are virtually invisible. The removal of amalgam fillings can provide you with white fillings that provide a more pleasing, metal-free smile.
As with the old metal filings, composite tooth colored fillings are used to repair a tooth affected by decay or damage, or are used to replace the metal fillings themselves. Composite fillings are a resin based tooth colored material and because of this, they can be matched to the existing tooth color and are best suited for use in front teeth or the more visible areas of the mouth.
