Providing an effective repair for decay or damage, composite (or tooth coloured) fillings blend in with your natural teeth.
They are suitable for the front or back teeth and, as well as being an aesthetic choice, they can also support the remaining structure of a damaged tooth to help prevent further breakage and sensitivity.
The composite resin is a mixture of plastic and glass that is layered on to a cavity and shaped to look like a real tooth. They are more technique sensitive than traditional fillings so the procedure may take longer. Composite fillings are made from modern, hard-wearing materials and offer a long-lasting solution to restore teeth.
As with all dental restorations, good oral hygiene is essential to ensure the longevity of composite fillings.
