What are composite fillings and how can they change the look of my teeth?

Composite fillings are a conservative, natural-looking solution for teeth with small cavities, fractures, gaps or discolorations.  Composites are a more esthetic alternative to silver, amalgam fillings and, as a result, have become the preferred material for fixing a tooth.

 

 

Composites are retained onto a tooth by bonding, where the material is allowed to extend into the pore-like tubules of your tooth and form a strong, interlocking connection.  Composites come in multiple shades that can be layered and mixed to ensure that they match your tooth’s natural color, and a high polish allows for an optimum cosmetic result.
