Composite Fillings in Monroe, WI
What Is a Composite Filling?
A composite filling is made of a tooth-colored plastic and glass mixture and used to restore decayed or cracked teeth. We also use the composite material to make cosmetic improvements like fixing discoloration and reshaping malformed teeth for a more uniform smile.
Getting a Composite Filling
If you have a cavity or a cracked tooth, your dentist will likely recommend a composite filling to reinforce the tooth’s structure and prevent the damage from getting worse. The procedure is relatively simple. In fact, fillings are among the most common dental treatments performed by dentists around the world.
The extent of the damage to the tooth will determine how large or small the filling will need to be. Early intervention is key when it comes to tooth decay or other damage — one more reason to visit us every 6 months for regular check-ups.
Most of the time, you can get a filling in just one office visit. However, if you require fillings in several teeth, your dentist may recommend scheduling more than one appointment.
