A composite (tooth colored) filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc.  The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling. Because composite fillings are tooth colored,  they can be closely matched to the color of existing teeth, and are more aesthetically suited for use in front  teeth or the more visible areas of the teeth.

As with most dental restorations,  composite fillings are not permanent and may someday have to be replaced.  They are very durable, and will last many years,  giving you a long lasting, beautiful smile.

Reason for composite fillings:

  • Chipped teeth.
  • Closing space between two teeth.
  • Cracked or broken teeth.
  • Decayed teeth.
  • Worn teeth.
