Composite Filling
When treating a cavity, the dentists at Breeze Dental will remove the decayed portion of your tooth and fill it with another substance. This procedure is called a filling.
Breeze Dental offers composite fillings which is the most common material to be used in the filling. A composite filling is also known as a tooth-colored filling. This technique has been used for dental procedures for decades, and it’s very useful for enhancing both aesthetics and function of the teeth. A composite filling can also be used for chipped teeth and decreasing the gap between teeth.
The composite (tooth colored) filling is used in many situations to repair a decayed or damaged tooth. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be replaced with a composite filling.
Although composite fillings are quite aesthetic and durable over time. They should be examined regularly to ensure its tight seal. We will check your composite fillings at routine dental visit, and if needed, we will also repair/replace your composite fillings for you!
