Composite Fillings

Composite Fillings:

Composite fillings are made of a plastic material mixed with small glass particles and are tooth coloured, rather than silver. They can be suitable for repairing both the front and back teeth.

After preparing the tooth, your dentist will place layers of the composite filling into the area to be repaired. Each layer of the composite material is hardened by exposure to a special light.

Once the cavity or defect is filled, your dentist can adjust the composite to fit the tooth and then polish it.

Advantages of composite fillings:


  • Composite fillings can be fitted into very small holes, so less drilling is needed in preparation for the fillings.
  • These types of fillings can help insulate the tooth from major temperature changes.
