A composite (tooth coloured) filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling.
There are many types of filling materials available, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. Composite fillings, along with silver amalgam fillings, are the most widely used today. Because composite fillings are tooth coloured, they can be closely matched to the colour of existing teeth, and are more aesthetically suited for use in front teeth or the more visible areas of your smile. You and Dr. Randy Singh, Dr. Marty Sekand, Dr. Ken Jandoo or Dr. Steven Schneider can discuss the best options for restoring your teeth during your consultation at there Richmond Hill Dental Office.
As with most dental restorations, dental fillings are not permanent and may someday have to be replaced. When an amalgam filling becomes loose or broken, for example, it lets bacteria into the tooth and it’s time to get it replaced to prevent dental infection. We’ll inspect your fillings every time you come in for a checkup at our Richmond Hill Dental Office and recommend a new restoration at the appropriate time.
Reasons why you may need composite white fillings:
- Chipped teeth.
- Closing space between two teeth.
- Cracked or broken teeth.
- Decayed teeth.
- Worn teeth.
- Leaking amalgam filling
