We choose tooth-colored composite resin as the material for fillings at Renaissance Family Dentistry because of its versatility and natural appearance. For these reasons, the tooth-colored filling material is also perfect for bonding, a cosmetic dental procedure that corrects minor smile flaws.
We exclusively use tooth-colored composite fillings at our Durham dental office because they offer several advantages over older fillings. First, modern composite fillings are much more durable than “white” fillings made decades ago, so they withstand more wear and tear.
Also, when placing a filling, we don’t need to compromise a lot of healthy tooth structure for a durable repair as we would with a silver filling. Finally, our Durham dentists will carefully custom shade your filling match the white shade of your teeth. We take great pride in designing restorations that look so natural that no one will guess you have had any dental work done. Once your composite filling is in place, even you won't be able to detect the spot where your tooth meets the repair.
If you have a cavity and need a tooth filling, please call Renaissance Family Dentistry to get started. We are pleased to serve patients in Durham, Chapel Hill, Research Triangle Park, Cary, Morrisville, Apex, Raleigh, and all surrounding communities.
