What is a composite filling?

A composite filling, also known as a “white filling”, is an aesthetic type of filling that is used to restore broken or decayed teeth. The broken or decayed part of your tooth will be removed and then replaced with a natural looking composite filling. Dr. Han only uses the best, high-end composite filling materials in his office.

When is a composite filling indicated?

  • Chipped teeth
  • Closing the space between two teeth
  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Decayed teeth
  • Worn teeth

How are composite fillings placed?

Composite fillings are placed in one appointment. While your tooth is numb and comfortable, Dr. Han will remove any decay or damage. The tooth will be thoroughly cleaned and carefully prepared. The composite filling will then be precisely placed, shaped, cured and polished. Your tooth will be restored to its original shape and function!
