Composite Fillings

Composite fillings are indicated to restore a decayed or broken tooth that is not as severely damaged as one requiring a crown or extraction. Fillings can also be done to improve the aesthetics of discolored or misshapen teeth. The composite filling material is a mixture of plastic and glass that is matched to the adjacent tooth structure for highly pleasing aesthetic results. The natural color of composite fillings is generally preferable when compared to amalgam fillings in which a metal alloy is used to restore cavities.
