A composite resin filling is a tooth-colored filling material that is applied to the tooth and hardened with a curing light. This type of filling is useful for:
- Changing the shape of teeth
- Closing spaces between teeth
- Repairing decay in teeth
- Repairing chips or cracks in teeth
- Protecting sensitive teeth
Composites can be made in a wide range of tooth colors allowing near invisible restoration of teeth leaving a highly esthetic result.
