Composite resin-based fillings, also called tooth-colored fillings, are extremely durable and resistant to damage from cracks or fracture for small to medium-sized fillings. Even under the constant barrage of stress from chewing food, composites can last for many years to come.

Don’t lose the battle to cavities without giving composite a chance. Here is how they can help:

– If you take terrific care of your composites, they can easily last up to ten years.
– Composite fillings are designed to blend with the normal aesthetics of your teeth.
– Composites do not need to be removed if they go bad, as they can be refurbished easily without the need to remove the originals.
– Composite fillings are mercury-free, which is essential for those who may be allergic to mercury.
– Teeth can still suffer breaks and fractures with composites, but because composites are made of a tough, durable resin-based material, they help the teeth become more preventative of damage.
– Composite fillings can repair cavities that are too minute for dental amalgams to work effectively.
