What would you say if we told you that we could repair your tooth without as much preparation as what is needed for a traditional filling? Because of the unique way composite material bonds to teeth, they require less preparation than metal fillings. In essence, we are building your tooth back up, and all that needs to be removed is the area of decay - not large portions of tooth to hold the filling in place. The unique bonding relationship allows composite fillings to be placed in areas where traditional fillings can’t.
Composite fillings are made of materials that match tooth enamel. It comes in a variety of shades and is matched so that the new restoration blends right in with your tooth; so well, that you shouldn’t even be able to see the filling. For that reason, many people choose composite fillings to repair their decay, as well as to replace aging silver fillings.
