What are composite fillings?

Composite fillings, are dental restorations used to repair teeth that have been damaged by decay, cracks, or fractures. They are made of a mixture of tooth-colored plastic and glass particles, providing a natural appearance that blends seamlessly with your existing teeth. Composite fillings are highly versatile and can be used to fill cavities, repair chips, reshape teeth, and even change the color of teeth for cosmetic purposes.

Do i need composite fillings

You may need composite fillings if you have cavities, cracks, or chips in your teeth that need repair. Here are some reasons why composite fillings may be recommended:

- Tooth decay: Composite fillings are used to fill cavities caused by tooth decay, restoring the tooth's structure and function.

- Preservation of tooth structure: Composite fillings require less removal of healthy tooth structure compared to amalgam fillings, helping to preserve more of your natural tooth.
