Fillings are a very common treatment when restoring a tooth. Many people have experienced amalgam fillings in the past, the silver material that is applied to your back teeth. With new materials and procedures available, tooth coloured filling materials, known as composites are used and small unsightly amalgam fillings can be replaced easily and quickly with this material.
Composite filling material is best used for:
Small to mid size cavities
Small areas that require aesthetic repairs or enhancement
The same technique and material can also be used to fill minor fractures or cracks in your teeth, using a process called bonding.
