A tooth-colored filling, also known as composite filling is a tooth-colored plastic and glass combination used to replace damaged teeth. Also, composites are utilized for the cosmetic development of the smile through changing the color of the teeth and reshaping the crooked teeth.
Tooth-colored fillings provide good strength and protection into your teeth. It can be used on either back or the front of teeth. If you want to make your fillings more natural, it is the excellent choice for you. It really takes time in putting composite filling than it does for a metal filling because tooth-colored filling requires the tooth to be clean and dry while the cavity is being loaded. This is now used more frequently than gold filling or amalgam. Most people want fillings to be likely the natural color of their teeth.
The use of the mixture depends on where the tooth is located in your mouth. You must visit and talk to your dentist about other information and options.
Here are some advantages that you can benefit in applying tooth-colored fillings:
-They will appear as the same color as your natural teeth.

-In most cases, they can be done in one appointment.
