Fibre Reinforced Composite Restorations
The main problem with large white fillings has always been the high risk of them or the underlying tooth breaking...
With fibre reinforced composites the risk is dramatically reduced. In the same way as reinforced concrete makes buildings safer, reinforced composites are stronger and more tooth saving. The new composite is twice as strong as conventional composite filling!
You dentist may recommend fibre reinforced composites when the filling is large, where one or more cusps of the tooth is damaged or after a root canal treatment. They are an ex excellent way to reinforce the tooth without the cost or time required for a crown.
