Resin Fillings

What is a resin filling?
Resin composite fillings are made up of ceramic and plastic compounds. Resin allows us to choose a customized shade to match your specific tooth color.

What are the advantages of a resin filling?
They are the same color as your teeth and blend well for a less noticeable look. The resin bonds to the tooth. This allows for a great seal and easy adhesion. Because of the flexibility of the resin, there is less drilling. This means we can preserve more of your
actual tooth structure.

What’s the downside of resin fillings?
The tooth colored filling doesn’t last as long. It is estimated that they need replaced after 5-7 years. Which is mush sooner then the amalgam (silver filling). Because the resin is bonded it can take longer to place then a traditional filling.
