What are resin composite fillings?

Resin composite fillings are made of a ceramic and plastic compound. Because resin mimics the appearance of natural teeth, these fillings blend right in. They’re also known as “white fillings” or “tooth-colored fillings.”

Advantages of Resin fillings include

  • Invisible. The same color as your teeth, these fillings blend in.
  • Easy adhesion. Resin composite bonds to the surface of your tooth.
  • Preserves maximum amount of tooth. The flexibility of resin composite means less drilling is required
