Teeth that have been affected by tooth decay (caries or cavities) require a filling.

Composite resins

Composite (white) Resin Dental Fillings were created as an alternative to traditional metal dental fillings. Tooth fillings colored to look like a natural tooth are known as Composite (white) Resin Dental Fillings and are made of a plastic dental resin. Composite (white) Resin Dental Fillings are strong, durable, and make for a very natural looking smile.

Other alternatives to restoring damaged or decayed teeth:

  • porcelain veneers - a ceramic material is bonded to the front of teeth to change the tooth's color, size, and/or shape
  • crown - a "cap" that covers a cracked or broken tooth, unfixed by a filling, to approximate its normal size and shape
