A composite or tooth-coloured filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks or fractures. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling.
Due to their natural appearance and strength, white composite fillings are becoming an increasingly popular choice with patients, as they are able to be colour matched, making them indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
Composite fillings are the most common form of a tooth restoration. They create a strong bond with the tooth, nearly restoring its original strength and structure.
Tooth coloured composites are used not only for the aesthetics and shade matching, but also for the good mechanical properties. Some of our dentists are skilled in using a combination of shades and tints to provide an almost seamless restoration-tooth interface. Teeth restored with tooth coloured fillings can be less sensitive to hot and cold than the ones restored with an amalgam.
On some occasions, amalgam fillings are used due to the superior mechanical properties and ability to restore teeth with cavities under the gums.
Since joining the dentist I have always been happy with the attention to detail Sundeep and the team put in and the young lady in the room I think Chelsea? Is really wonderful and always helpful, she is a credit to the practice.
