Here at Sunderland Dental, we do white fillings using a composite material to restore cavities or to replace silver amalgam fillings. These filling materials are made of a combination of acrylic (plastic) resin and powdered glass particles. The material is bonded to your tooth and hardens under a special light to form a strong, aesthetic, long lasting restoration.
Benefits of Composite Restorations:
-completed in one visit
-can be used to fix minor flaws as well as larger damage
-short lived temperature sensitivity
-ability to bond directly to natural tooth structure
