Composite fillings are made of a long-lasting material designed to closely match the color of your teeth. These fillings can be used to treat tooth decay (a.k.a. cavities), as well as chipped or broken teeth. We can even use composite fillings to reduce gaps between teeth. At Beach Dental Care, we prefer this type of filling over amalgam fillings because it allows us to minimize the amount of tooth removal required. It’s also a much more favorable option for treating highly visible teeth because of its natural look.
