When polished, our white fillings blend seamlessly with your tooth, so other people won’t be able to tell that you had a cavity.If you had a cavity years ago, you may have a filling that is showing signs of wear and tear. If it’s time to replace that worn-out filling, then a composite resin filling could be the perfect replacement option. It offers the same protection as metal fillings but without becoming a distraction when you speak or smile.
