Composite fillings are used to restore teeth that have been affected by decay or damage. A composite dental filling can repair the tooth effectively and beautifully, restoring the health and function of the tooth. Composite fillings are created using composite resin, which is a tooth-colored material that your dentist will match to your natural tooth color for aesthetic results. Because they blend in with your natural tooth color, composite fillings are also known as white fillings or tooth-colored fillings. In addition to being a natural-looking choice for restoring your tooth, the composite resin bonds with the tooth structure to strengthen the tooth and help to prevent further decay in the future.
To place your composite filling, Dr. Prigmore will first remove the decayed or damaged portion of the tooth. He will then clean and fill in the tooth. He will shape and polish the filling to fit your smile comfortably and to blend in with your natural teeth.
