Tooth decay and cavities are very common issues. In the past, they were usually repaired using dark, metal fillings. Fortunately, we now have composite, tooth-colored fillings that can effectively repair most cavities while keeping your smile bright and natural.
Tooth-colored fillings mimic the look, feel and function of a natural tooth. They are made from a mix plastic and glass. This composite material can also be used for cosmetic repairs including the repair of chips and gaps and to change the color or shape of teeth. When repairing a cavity, we will usually start with an injective of a local anesthetic to ensure the patient’s comfort during the procedure. All decay will be removed, and then the composite filling is applied to the tooth in layers, using a curing light to harden each layer. The primary advantage of composite fillings is their natural look that is matched to your tooth color.
