-Composite (White) Fillings-
A white or composite filling restores decayed teeth. Got cavities? Composite fillings are an aesthetic solution to prevent further decay. You can also replace metal fillings with healthier, brighter white ones.
Advantages of Composite Fillings
- Cosmetic - colors are blended to match your tooth
- Support to the remaining tooth structure
- Prevention of further decay or breakage
- Insulated to avoid sensitivity
Composite filling mixtures are generally placed in layers over the tooth with a light used to harden each layer. The filling is then shaped to fit the tooth. And finally, the composite is polished for a beautiful new look.
