Tooth colored fillings, sometimes called composite fillings and white fillings, are made up of silica, fine glass particles and plastic. Many parents are certainly familiar with the traditional materials used for treating cavities such as “silver” amalgam fillings. While this option has both the strength to withstand the heavy forces generated during chewing as well as the durability to retain its integrity over time, we understand very well that you want your child’s developing smile to remain natural-looking over the years. That’s why Dr. Berlin uses high-quality, tooth-colored composite material (combination of plastics and other non-metal materials) to treat teeth in need.
