A composite filling is a tooth-colored mixture of glass and plastic used to restore decayed teeth. Many cosmetics improvements can be achieved through the use of composites by changing the color of the teeth or by reshaping any disfigured teeth.
This is a high quality option that essentially “repairs” your decayed teeth and allows you to rest easy knowing that tooth has been taken care of.
Once your tooth and mouth area are prepared, the dentist places the composite in layers, typically using a light which is specialized to harden each and every layer. Once this process is complete, the dentist will shape the composite to fit the tooth. Lastly, the dentist polishes the composite to prevent staining and early wear.
