Composites are tooth-colored fillings that are made of a special type resin.  They are strong and durable enough to be placed in the back teeth (molars and premolars) as well as in the front teeth.  Their ability to attach to the tooth is by way of an etching, bonding and curing (light) process as seen in the picture on the right.  They are highly polishable so that the closely resemble and blend in with the patient's own tooth. They are an excellent treatment alternative to the traditional amalgam (silver fillings).  In a society where appearance is everything, patient's are very much interested in cosmetic dental treatment options.  Not only is a patient's smile a part of an individual's outward appearance, but the entire mouth is an extention of a person's overall appearance.  Ask about composites at your next dental visit.
