Composite Fillings – Westfield, NJ
Composite fillings are fillings made from a tooth-colored glass and plastic mixture applied to restore decaying teeth or reshape disfigured teeth. The mixture is shaded to match closely the color of the decaying tooth, which makes it an appealing aesthetic option for fillings. Composite fillings help protect against breakage by bonding with the tooth and remaining tooth structure. They also insulate the tooth from temperature fluctuations, which can reduce sensitivity.
