Reasons for composite fillings:
- Chipped teeth
- Closing space between two teeth
- Cracked or broken teeth
- Decayed teeth
- Worn teeth
A composite (tooth-coloured) filling is used to repair a tooth with decay, cracks, fractures, etc. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling.There are many types of filling materials available, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. You and your dentist can discuss the best options for restoring your teeth.
Composite fillings, along with silver amalgam fillings, are the most widely used today. Because composite fillings are tooth-coloured, they can be closely matched to the colour of your teeth, and are more aesthetically suited for use in front teeth or the more visible areas of the teeth.
As with most dental restorations, composite fillings are not permanent and may someday have to be replaced. They are very durable, giving you a long lasting, beautiful smile.
