A composite (tooth-coloured) filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. Tooth-coloured fillings are also used to replace old silver fillings. Composite fillings restore the affected tooth to its original shape or enhance its function and esthetic.
A tooth’s decayed or affected portion is removed and then filled with a white composite filling that closely matches the existing tooth colour. The fillings are placed, shaped, and polished precisely. They are durable and can give you a long-lasting, beautiful smile.
Care instructions are given at the conclusion of your treatment by your dentist and dental hygienist. Good oral hygiene practices, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in the longevity of your new fillings.
Reasons you may need composite fillings: Decayed teeth, Chipped, cracked or broken teeth, Worn out teeth, Closing space between two teeth.
