Tooth Colored Fillings
Composites or tooth colored fillings have been around for many years. The material has greatly advanced in technology over the past few years. Composites come in a variety of shades to match the color of natural teeth. A special light is used at the time of placement to cure and harden the material, allowing the patient to chew and function with their new restoration immediately. For those teeth requiring very large fillings and/or have cracks, a crown to better protect the tooth may be recommended.
