Composite fillings are matched to the color of your existing tooth. We use these fillings to repair cracks, cavities, fractures and chips in your teeth. To do this, we first remove the affected portion of the tooth. Then, we add the composite filling.
Dentists have many options for materials to fill teeth. However, the two most popular are composite and amalgam. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages. The best part about composite fillings though is that they look great since they match the color of your teeth. This is especially preferred when operating on front teeth or teeth that are visible when you smile.
Our team can complete a composite filling with just one visit to our office. Here’s a look at the process for completing a composite filling so you know what to expect from your visit.
