When the tooth is damaged by decay/ wear/ fracture, the decayed/damaged portion is removed and a dental filling is placed to replace the lost tooth structure.

    Composite fillings (often known as “white fillings”) are a mixture of glass or quartz filler in a resin medium that produces a tooth-colored filling. Composites can be "bonded" in a cavity, often allowing the dentist to make a more conservative repair to the tooth.

    Not only used for restoring decayed teeth, composites are also used for cosmetic improvements of the smile by changing the color of the teeth or reshaping disfigured teeth.


    Teeth bonding is a least expensive alternative for restoring broken teeth. Bonding is used to replace missing tooth structure by using tooth-colored material to repair the defects in a tooth like chips, spacing and discoloration. The composite bonds to the rest of the tooth and becomes one.
