A composite (tooth colored) filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with the composite filling.
There are many types of filling materials available, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. At Kaufman Family Dentistry, we primarily restore teeth with composite, however, we do offer silver amalgam fillings as well. Dr. Conner and Dr. Sloan will discuss which option is best for you.
