What Are Composite Fillings?

A composite filling, like a traditional dental filling, is used to restore decayed or damaged teeth. Your emergency dentist or cosmetic dentist near Park Ridge may recommend composite fillings, rather than traditional fillings, as composite fillings look much more natural. Composite fillings are also often used in cosmetic dentistry procedures to reshape a damaged tooth, or change the color of the tooth.
