Restore Your Smile Using Composite Fillings
A type of dental restoration that’s used to repair cavities and other minor tooth damage, composite (also known as tooth-coloured) fillings offer a variety of benefits, including the fact that this material can be matched to the natural shade of a patient’s teeth, preserving their smiling and speaking confidence.

What additional benefits do composite fillings offer?
Along with the fact that they’re more aesthetically pleasing than traditional amalgam options, composite fillings also provide a strong bond to the tooth structure, are less likely to cause temperate sensitivity, and because less of a patient’s tooth is removed when these fillings are placed, they help preserve more of the tooth’s natural shape.
Who is a candidate for composite fillings?
Composite fillings are an excellent choice for most patients who need to repair minor damage to their teeth. They may also be an option for those who’d like to replace failing silver amalgam fillings.
How long do these fillings typically last?
When patients prioritize taking diligent care of their oral health, composite fillings can last for many years. That said, it’s not uncommon for fillings to need to be replaced over time as they may chip or wear down due to the pressures of biting and chewing.
How should these fillings be cared for?
Patients who receive composite fillings should practice good oral hygiene habits by brushing twice and flossing at least once a day and eating a balanced and nutritious diet that's low in sugar. Seeing us for regular checkups is also vital to help keep these fillings - and your oral health - in top form.
