Composite fillings

OUR SERVICESComposite Fillings

Restorative procedures are done to replace tooth structure that is lost or damaged due to decay, fracture or other defects. Composite fillings are a white resin material that is bonded to fix small or medium sized defects.

Advantages of composite are that they are bonded to the tooth, are esthetically pleasing (white!) and they can be a very conservative restoration. Composite fillings are appropriate for anterior and posterior defects, although we may recommend a stronger material, such as gold or porcelain, if the filling is large or there is evidence of significant wear or evidence of teeth grinding.

It is also important to remember that teeth filled with any filling material can still get recurrent decay, so they need to be brushed and flossed as you would your normal teeth. Composite fillings can also become chipped or cracked, which may require replacement in the future.
