Small pockets of tooth decay can create cavities that affect the health and beauty of your smile. When these cavities need to be removed and filled, you want a material that will match your teeth and be undetectable when you smile. At Meridian Campus Family Dental, we offer white composite fillings that will protect your tooth’s exterior when a cavity is removed, yet look and feel just like your natural tooth.
Composite fillings are a cosmetic dentistry treatment that have been used for decades to repair teeth that have been exposed to decay. This hard and durable material is preferable for repairing front or anterior teeth as it can be colored to match your natural teeth. Although amalgam has been widely used to repair molars due to its superior strength for higher pressure areas, composite fillings have improved to offer similar durability in repairing cavities with a more appealing appearance.
