A composite filling is a tooth-colored plastic and glass mixture used to restore decayed teeth. Composites are also used for cosmetic improvements of the smile by changing the color of the teeth or reshaping disfigured teeth.

 

Following preparation, the dentist places the composite in layers, typically using a blue light specialized to harden each layer. When the process is finished, the dentist will shape the composite to fit the tooth. The dentist then polishes the composite to prevent staining and early wear.

 

Advantages of composite fillings include:

  • Your fillings will match the color of your teeth

  • A filling can be completed in one dental visit

  • Composite fillings bond directly to the tooth which makes the tooth stronger than it would be with an amalgam filling
