A composite filling is made to match up with the color of your teeth. They’re made to repair chips, close undesirable spaces between teeth, and even fill in cracked or decayed teeth. There are various materials commonly used for composite fillings. Since they’re made to look just like your existing teeth, composite fillings are typically used more in the front of the mouth than they are in the back.
It typically only takes one appointment to place a composite filling. It’s a pretty standard process; the tooth is numbed, cleaned and then the new filling is placed. Most patients frequently experience temporary temperature sensitivity, when eating and drinking, that subsides after a very short period of time.
