Used to prevent the spread of tooth decay or to correct any cosmetic damage, a filling is just one of the ways our dentists preserve your health. Before placement, any caries must be drilled out.
Composite Resin Fillings
Since the colour of a composite resin filling can be customized, it is the most aesthetically pleasing option. Composite resin is ideal for repairing chipped or cracked teeth, filling in a tooth gap, correcting dental discoloration, protecting any exposed tooth root from gum recession, or for changing the shape of teeth. Patients may also choose composite resin for cavity fillings, since they are bonded to the teeth in layers and therefore require less drilling away of the natural tooth.
