Composite fillings are often used to replace cracked, fractured, chipped, broken or decayed teeth as well as fill in unattractive spaces between the teeth. The dentist will remove the affected tooth and replace it with a composite filling. A composite filling may last for several years. But, since it is temporary, replacing it with a new one is necessary in the future.

Overview Of The Procedure:
Placing composite fillings typically requires only one appointment with the dentist. The professional will use anesthesia to numb the teeth, remove decay, and thoroughly clean the area. Afterwards, the dentist will place the composite filling exactly to restore the original shape of your teeth. At the end of the procedure, you will receive care instructions for your new fillings.
Take note that your new fillings may become sensitive to hot or cold foods but this is actually normal. It may take some time for the new fillings to get acclimated to the situation. When they do, the sensitivity will eventually subside.
