RESTORATIONS

Advantages of Composite/Bonded Restorations

 

Aesthetics:
The main advantage of a direct dental composite over traditional materials such as amalgam is improved aesthetics. Composites can be in a wide range of tooth colors. Composite fillings can be closely matched to the color of existing teeth.

Bonding to tooth structure:
Composite fillings chemically bond to tooth structure. This strengthens the tooth's structure and restores its original physical integrity.
 
Versatility:

Composite fillings can be used to repair chipped, broken or worn teeth which would not be repairable using amalgam fillings.

There are many advantages to tooth-colored restorations. Composite restorations are bonded to teeth creating a tight, superior fit to the natural tooth. Such restorations can be used in instances where much of the tooth structure has been lost. The tooth remains intact and stronger.
