Tooth colored restorations are referred to as composites, because they are composed of a resin matrix and fillers. Composites or resins have undergone continual improvements in durability, stability and esthetic properties. Tooth colored restorations are actually bonded to tooth structures as opposed to amalgam metal restorations that are locked into the tooth. Tooth colored restorations come in a variety of shades to match your tooth, so they will look and feel just like your tooth. These restorations are strong, tough and will last a long time if properly taken care of. At Omaha Family Dental we offer both tooth colored composite restorations and metal amalgam restorations.
