At the Worthington Dental Group, teeth are always filled with a tooth-colored composite material which matches the color of your natural teeth. The benefits of our fillings versus traditional amalgam fillings are as follows:
Beautiful, natural-looking results
No health risks associated with use
Patients report less post treatment sensitivity/discomfort when composite materials are used
Can be custom-matched to blend with surrounding teeth for optimal aesthetics
Composite fillings actually chemically bond to tooth structure which provides more support
Less tooth structure needs to be removed when preparing tooth
