COMPOSITE RESIN FILLINGS
Dental caries (AKA "Cavities") are a common oral issue. Caries are easily and best addressed in their early stages to prevent further damage, which if left untreated, could lead to the need for root canals and dental crown treatments. Modern advances in dental filling materials and boding techniques now offer patients new ways to create strong and natural-looking filling restorations.
In contrast to dental amalgam, which was historically the most common filling material, new composite resin is a strong, biocompatible, tooth-colored material that can be bonded directly to the tooth to repair cavities or small chips in natural teeth.
