Composite Restorations (“Fillings”)
When bacteria invade the tooth, it results in decay, and the loss of tooth structure. This process continues until the decay is removed.
Tooth-colored, composite, restorations replace the tooth structure lost to bacterial decay. These restorations are bonded to the tooth and polished.
When tooth decay extends further into the tooth, stronger restorations, such as crowns and onlays are required due to their improved strength. Ask your dentist which restorative materials are best for you.
