Composite Fillings

In the treatment of a cavity, the decayed portion of the tooth is removed and filled with another substance. This process is called a filling. There are many options for the filling material that can be used, but the most common are composite and amalgam (silver) fillings.
A composite filling is also known as a tooth colored filling, since the material used in the filling can be closely matched to the color of your teeth. Composite fillings provide good durability for small to medium cavities, all while removing less of the tooth than you would during an amalgam filling. They are also particularly well suited for treating front or highly visible teeth because of their natural look. It is because of these combination of beneficial factors that most dental practices are moving away from amalgam (silver) fillings altogether.

When can a composite filling be used for?
  • Decayed tooth (i.e. cavity)
  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Decreasing the gap between teeth
