Almost everyone will need a tooth filling at some point. Most people assume fillings are only meant for cavities. Although this is their primary use, fillings are also used to fix worn, broken or cracked teeth. Fillings can protect a cavity from getting worse or fix a tooth that’s in need of repair.
Composite, or tooth-colored, fillings are an inexpensive and pain free way to resolve a number of cosmetic issues. Fillings can be used to repair teeth that suffer from fractures, cracks, or decay. Composite fillings are aesthetically pleasing because they can be made to match the color of your natural teeth. They are durable and long lasting.
Some cases where you may need composite fillings are:
- Chipped teeth.
- To little space between two teeth.
- Cracked, decayed, or broken teeth.
We can place composite fillings in just one appointment! We can shape the filling and polish it to match your surrounding teeth. Your fillings will be fully functional and no one will even be able to tell that you had a filling placed.
