A composite (tooth-coloured) filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay as well as chipped teeth, worn teeth and fractures. Composite fillings are tooth-coloured and can be matched to the colour of existing teeth. It is important to know that composite fillings are not permanent and may someday have to be replaced. Composite fillings are usually placed in one appointment. While the tooth is numb, your dentist will remove decay or an old filling. The place can be cleaned and carefully prepared before the new filling is placed.
