Choose Composite Fillings

Reasons To Choose Composite Fillings

Materials used in fillings have advanced in recent times with composite fillings used more often now than amalgam. Composite fillings are tooth-coloured and are designed to blend in with your teeth.

Key takeaways:

  • Composite fillings can be used on the back and front teeth and can be a good option for a more visible tooth.
  • Your dentist may not recommend composite fillings for cavities which may be too large or require a lot of chewing.
  • Composite fillings offer good durability in small to mid-size cavities, with moderate chewing pressures.

“Composites cost more than amalgam and occasionally are not covered by some insurance plans.”
