A relatively new "player" to the game is tooth colored, also known as Composite, fillings. And by new, we're talking about 20-30 years. Composite fillings vary in microscopic composition, but all try to mimic the natural appearance of a tooth. I'll always make sure you're getting the best type of composite for each specific tooth. I love composite fillings since they allow me to really embrace my artistic side. There are basically two other types of filling materials available, so also look for my info on gold and amalgam fillings.
