Composite (tooth colored) fillings

Dr. Marion uses bonded tooth colored composite resin fillings, which blend in with the natural color of the patient's tooth.  Composite resins provide good durability and resistance to fracture in small- to mid-size fillings that need to withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing. 

No dental filling lasts forever.  Ultimately, the best dental filling is no dental filling. Prevention is the best medicine. You can dramatically decrease your risk of cavities and other dental diseases by:  


                         •    brushing your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste     

                         •    flossing daily     

                         •    eating a balanced diet     

                         •    visiting us regularly.
