Composite “White” Fillings
Dental composite bonding is a popular choice for fillings because the material can match the shade, translucency and even the texture of your own natural teeth and provides a much better aesthetic result than amalgam/silver fillings, therefore enhancing your smile.
The tooth surface where the composite will be applied is thoroughly cleaned of any decay and old filling as the composite needs a clean surface to bond to. Once the correct shade of composite has been selected by your dental team, the tooth is kept dry and then the material is shaped and the tooth is restored. The final step involves polishing and buffing the composite to give the desired shape and smooth finish.
