Tooth-Colored Composite Restorations

Tooth-colored fillings are made from durable plastics called composite resins.  Similar in color and texture to the natural teeth, the fillings are less noticable.  Resin filling bond to the tooth allowing Dr. Glenn or Dr. Carmen to remove less tooth structure than an amalgam non-bonding filling (silver filling).  The resin filling is also fluoride releasing, which can lower decay rates.
