Composite / Tooth Colored Restorations
Advances in modern dental materials and techniques increasingly offer new ways to create more pleasing, natural-looking smiles. In our Wauwatosa-based office we are an amalgam free office. We believe that the restorations we put in your mouth look natural when they laugh, talk and smile. White fillings, also called composite fillings, are made from tooth-colored materials that restore the natural appearance of a decayed or previously filled tooth.
A composite filling usually requires only one visit, during which the tooth is prepared and restored. An advantage of composite fillings, as compared with other dental restorations, is that they require less of the healthy part of a tooth to be removed to hold the filling in place. This is due to composite materials’ ability to bond to teeth adhesively.
