Composite is the material of choice when replacing broken teeth, fillings and restoring teeth following dental decay. These ‘white fillings’ have replaced amalgam in today’s modern dentistry and give a lasting aesthetic result.
Composites are bonded to the tooth so less of your tooth is removed. The tooth is built up and anatomically shaped then set hard using a strong blue light. In many cases the technique replaces the need for a crown and provides a one visit solution giving a strong and natural appearance.
