Top Benefits / Facts

By Dr. Brianne Fratantonio

Composite resin is a modern solution to the metal amalgam fillings used for many years in dentistry.

Dentists and individuals choose composite resin fillings for many reasons, mainly because it is tooth-colored and can fix many cosmetic issues, including cracks. They can be used effectively on both the front and back teeth as well.


The white cosmetic fillings merge well with teeth and don't change the appearance of your smile.

Composite resin does not contain metal, which can cause allergies and adverse health effects.

Composite resin is a more conventional treatment option, as less natural tooth structure requires removing it during filling.

Composite resin expands and contracts similarly to natural teeth when exposed to heat and cold; this makes teeth less prone to damage after treatment.
