Composite fillings are commonly known as “white fillings” due to the color of the material that helps match the natural shade of teeth. However their benefits don’t just end with color. They provide many advantages to old silver fillings. Composite fillings bond to the remaining tooth structure and provide much greater strength and longevity.
This strength allows Dr. Safaei to use composite materials not just for esthetics on the front teeth, but also for strength on the back teeth.
Composite fillings have many applications. They can be used to correct
- Chipped teeth
- Spaces between (gaps)
- Old silver fillings
- Broken teeth
- Worn teeth
Like any material, composite fillings have limitations. Depending on the size of cavity or problem, a filling may not be suitable to correct the area. Sometimes the proper treatment alternate options like crowns, onlay, inlays or other. Dr. Safaei will determine the severity of your condition and provide you with the best recommendation specific to your individual needs.
