Bellevue Composite Fillings (Tooth-Colored Fillings):

When considering tooth fillings, one of the options available is composite fillings which are made from durable plastics that are similar in color to natural teeth. Because the composite fillings are tooth-colored, they look more natural and are less noticeable compared to other types of fillings.Composite and Tooth Color Fillings, Cosmetic tooth fillings

Another benefit of tooth-colored fillings is that they are compatible with sealants, allowing your dentist to perform both procedures in a single sitting and thus preventing further decay. There are other advantages to composite, tooth-colored fillings such as, most importantly, its ability to bond to tooth structures. Also, in many cases these fillings can be repaired by the addition of more composite material.

Composite fillings or restorations are Dr. Chen's favorite type of filling because he does not have to remove as much tooth structure as in an amalgam preparation.  Because of the bonding properties of the composite to the tooth, Dr. Chen can minimally remove what's necessary and save a lot more tooth structure.
