Composites are fillings that are designed to match the color of your teeth. They may be used to restore a decayed tooth or repair a defect. Although they are often used on the front teeth where a natural appearance is important, they may be used on back teeth as well. Unlike the older amalgam fillings, composite restorations bond to tooth structure. This allows the dentist to close gaps between teeth and repair chips as well as fill decayed teeth.
