When a tooth is weakened by decay or damage, such as a fracture, we use tooth-colored composite resin to restore it.
A composite filling is an esthetic restoration used to replace missing tooth structure. Composite fillings bond chemically to the underlying tooth which allows us to be as conservative as possible after removing decayed or damaged areas.
For front teeth which are chipped or have unappealing space between them, we can use composite resin for “bonding”. These restorations are esthetically pleasing and can easily restore minor lost tooth structure.
