No matter how conscientious a person is in practicing good hygiene, most people will end up with a dental cavity at some point in their lives. Usually, treating a cavity entails the dentist removing the decay and then filling in the tooth area that has been removed. Most people have had experience with traditional amalgam fillings. This type of filling is very effective, but can be noticeable and can darken in color over time.
Composite resin dental fillings are comprised of unique plastic dental resin. This material is strong, durable, and blends in with the natural tooth, so they are less visible. They can be placed to close small gaps in between the front teeth.
