Composite fillings are made from a mixture of powdered glass and acrylic resin. They are used to fix teeth that are chipped, cracked, decayed, worn-out, fractured, discolored and for closing gaps between two teeth. The greatest advantage of composite fillings is that unlike amalgam fillings, they are tooth-colored.
Being tooth-colored, composite fillings blend in really well with the surrounding teeth and look natural. As a result, they have become a popular choice among people looking for cosmetic enhancements.
