Composite fillings are the most widely used materials for fillings today. Because composite fillings are tooth colored, they can be closely matched to the color of existing teeth, and often no one can tell the tooth has been filled!
Commonly known as white fillings, composite fillings can be contoured to resemble the color and shape of your teeth.
As with most dental restorations, composite fillings are not permanent and may someday have to be replaced. They are very durable, and with proper oral hygiene, will last many years – giving you a long lasting, beautiful smile.
Reasons for Composite Fillings
- Cracked or broken teeth
- Decayed teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Closing space between two teeth
- Worn teeth
