What is aesthetic composite filling?
The aesthetic composite filling (white filling) is a completely metal-free, tooth-colored plastic material that contains glass particles. It is used for cosmetic interventions and for reconstructing decayed tooth.
The aesthetic filling substitutes the damaged part of the tooth the same way as ‘silver’ amalgam fillings which are rarely used these days. For aesthetic reasons, white composite fillings can be the perfect alternative of amalgam fillings.
The main benefit of white composite filling is the fact that it provides an outstanding visual aesthetic since it looks the same as your own (natural) teeth. A lot of people worry about silver amalgam fillings which contain mercury. The white filling is perfectly fit as an alternative of the amalgams both aesthetically and qualitatively.
