When tooth decay affects your smile, fillings are an essential restorative dental service. Filling a cavity prevents more serious health problems from developing and keeps your smile healthy. Composite fillings are chemically bonded directly to the tooth and provide support to the overall structure.
There are several ways to fill cavities and restore the health and beauty of your smile. However, composite fillings are specially designed to blend in with the natural shade of your smile. Also known as tooth colored fillings, composite fillings are an excellent choice for cavities in more visible parts of the smile. The preparation process is also minimally invasive, removing necessary decay and maintaining the natural tooth structure. These aesthetic advantages make composite fillings an excellent choice when restoring teeth affected by tooth decay.
