Tooth colored fillings (composites) are used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a tooth colored composite filling.
Because composite fillings are tooth colored, they can be closely matched to the color of existing teeth and are more aesthetically suited for use in front teeth or the more visible areas of the teeth.
Reasons for tooth colored fillings (composites):
- Chips or cracks in teeth
- Closing gaps between teeth
- Broken teeth
- Decayed teeth
- Worn teeth
Good oral hygiene practices, eating habits, and regular dental check ups will help to preserve the life of your new fillings.
