Composite Resin (White Filling)

Composite Resin is a tooth-colored plastic mixture filled with glass (silicon dioxide) that can be bonded to the teeth. The fact that the resin is bonded means a seal is formed to reduce the chance of leakage (which is common with silver fillings); this also supports the remaining tooth structure, which helps to prevent breakage and insulate the tooth from excessive temperature changes.
