Filling is used to repair a tooth that is effected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling. Composite fillings are strong, but may not be as hard wearing as amalgam fillings. Each of the materials have their own advantages and disadvantages.
We can discuss the best options for restoring your teeth, Composite fillings are tooth coloured and are made from powdered glass quartz, silica or other ceramic particles added to a resin base. Because composite fillings are tooth coloured, it can be closely matched to colour of existing teeth, and are more aesthetically suited for use in front teeth or the more visible areas of the teeth.
