Composite Fillings

A Natural-Looking Restoration

There are many advantages to tooth-colored composite fillings (white fillings). Resin onlays are bonded to the natural teeth creating a tight, superior fit to the tooth. This process is done right in the Dentist’s office, quickly and relatively pain-free. The tooth remains intact and stronger. The resin wears like natural teeth and does not require placement at the gum line, which is healthier for your gums! Composite restorations mimic the appearance of your natural tooth and can be blended to match your own teeth. Speak with your Dentist to see if composite restoration is a good option for your next filling.

What are Composite Fillings?

  • A tooth colored (white) mixture used by dentists to fill cavities
  • They can also be used in cosmetic dentistry to improve the look of teeth

What are the Benefits of Composite Fillings?

  • They match closely to the color of your tooth so that a cavity filling is virtually undetectable
  • Composites also bond to the teeth to help with the structure of the tooth and prevent breakage
