For decades, dentists thought that what decaying teeth needed were stronger, more rigid materials in order to protect them from further decay. However, the body couldn’t cope and the teeth began to wear down even faster. In addition, the rigid metals don’t bond with the teeth and instead, just sit, resting on the tooth.
With tooth-colored fillings, the composite materials used can actually be bonded with the tooth, forming a seamless filling, both visually and functionally. This composite resin acts like your natural enamel, allowing the stress of biting to pass through the tooth as normal and ensuring that there is not unnatural pressure on any part of the tooth or jaw in particular. By using our natural teeth as a guide to finding appropriate materials, modern dentistry is now able to provide your teeth with exactly what they need to look, feel and be healthy.
