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.
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 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.
