COMPOSITE RESIN RESTORATIONS 

> TOOTH COLOURED FILLINGS / WHITE FILLINGS / PLASTIC FILLINGS / RESINS

Composite resins are an approach to repairing broken teeth and cavities caused by tooth decay to look natural, match to the remaining teeth and restore health.  Resin can be a good filling material when there is enough tooth structure to support it, but may wear out after about 5 years, and is technique sensitive. Our practice uses SonicFill 2 technology to restore the molar and premolar teeth.  They are not designed for very large fillings in back teeth where there is little remaining tooth structure for the long term.
