Fillings & Sealants

Composite Resins

A composite resin is a plastic filling material that can restore teeth to an attractive, healthy state. Composite resins have several advantages to you compared with traditional silver fillings.

First, we are able to blend composite shades to match the original teeth. Second, the tooth to composite bond actually serves to support the remaining tooth structure, helping to prevent breakage and it can provide insulation against temperature changes. Finally, average-sized and small sized composites have demonstrated similar duration to silver fillings.

Dental Sealants

Dental Sealants do just what they say — they seal the grooves in the biting surfaces of the back teeth to prevent tooth decay. They are recommended by the American Pediatric Dental Association and the World Health Association. Placing sealants is a simple and absolutely painless procedure.
