Sensational Smiles uses Mercury free Composite Resins. Composite resins, or tooth-colored fillings, provide good durability and resistance to fracture in small- to mid-size restorations that need to withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing. They can be used on either front or back teeth. They are a good choice for people who prefer that their fillings look more natural. Composite Resin fillings are made from hard materials like micro porcelain mixed with a PBA free plastic-based material that can be colored and polished to look like natural tooth structure.
