Composite Restorations

When decay is diagnosed on a tooth, there are various forms of treatment, including tooth colored restorations called composite fillings. These white fillings allow teeth to look natural when people talk, laugh or smile. This type of treatment only requires one visit, during which the tooth is prepared and restored. An advantage of composite fillings, as compared with other dental restorations, is that they require less of the healthy part of a tooth to be removed to hold the filling in place.
