Composite fillings offer a natural-looking way to restore a decayed or damaged tooth as they are made from a tooth-coloured resin which blends in with its surroundings.
Why you might need them
You may need composite fillings to support a damaged tooth and prevent any further breakage, decay or discomfort. They are an aesthetic alternative to obvious amalgam fillings and can help you feel less self-conscious about smiling.
How they help
- They can restore decayed or broken teeth
- They blend in with your natural teeth
- Modern materials make them a durable choice
- A minimally invasive option
How they work
- We numb the area with a local anaesthetic and remove the decayed part of the tooth.
- We apply the colour-matched shade of composite in layers and shape so it fits in with the rest of the tooth.
- We shine a bright blue light on the tooth to harden the resin and then polish so it resembles the natural tooth.
