Tooth-colored restorations allows a tooth to be filled with a strong chemically bonded material that can be matched to the color of your tooth; making the filling appear nearly invisible. Natural white colored bonded fillings are 90 - 95% as strong as a natural non-cavity healthy tooth. A silver filling is only 40 - 45% as strong as a non-cavity tooth.
Tooth-colored restorations replace silver dental amalgam. The composite resins used in today’s tooth-colored restorations were introduced in the 1960’s, and have undergone continual improvements in durability, color stability, material-handling qualities, and esthetic properties. tooth-colored restorations are actually bonded to remaining tooth structure, as compared to silver/amalgam restorations, which are "locked" into tooth structure. This property of resin restorations makes them a very conservative approach to tooth restoration because less drilling of the tooth is required for securing the filling.
