Composite Fillings

A filling helps restore a tooth damaged by decay back to its normal function and shape and helps prevent further decay by eliminating areas where bacteria can enter the tooth.   Decay will be removed from the tooth and the affected area cleaned so that it can be filled with a composite resin that will match the color of your natural teeth.  The material is bonded to the tooth, offering support to a tooth weakened by decay.  Composite fillings are durable and resistant to fracture in small to medium sized fillings.
