Our dentist and team provide effective and aesthetically pleasing composite dental fillings. This is a modern and versatile solution for repairing cavities, cracks and minor tooth damage. Composed of a tooth-colored resin material, these fillings blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, offering a discreet and durable restoration.
When Are Composite Fillings Appropriate?
Composite fillings are suitable for various situations:
- Cavities: Treating cavities with composite fillings prevents further decay and strengthens the tooth.
- Chips or Cracks: Composite fillings can repair minor structural damage and prevent further deterioration.
- Cosmetic Enhancements: Composite fillings can also be used to alter the shape or color of teeth for cosmetic purposes.
What to Expect During the Procedure
Our skilled dentist will begin by removing the damaged or decayed portion of the tooth. The tooth is then carefully prepared for the composite filling, which is applied in layers and hardened with a special light. Our aim is to ensure a comfortable experience and a restoration that seamlessly blends with your natural teeth.
Benefits of Composite Dental Fillings

- Durability: With proper care, composite fillings can last for years, providing reliable support.
- Quick Procedure: The placement of composite fillings is usually completed in a single visit.
