What is a Composite Filling?
A composite (white) filling is a tooth-colored plastic that is used to restore decayed, cracked, fractured, etc. teeth.
Although composite fillings are extremely durable and long lasting, they are not permanent and may require replacement someday.
How are Composite Fillings Placed?
Composite fillings may be placed in one appointment. After numbing your tooth, the dentist will remove decay as necessary. Finally, the composite filling will be shaped to fit the tooth, and restore the tooth to its original shape and function.
Why choose Composite Fillings?
Aesthetics. Dentists have the ability to blend shades in order to create a color that is nearly identical to the actual tooth.
