A composite (tooth-colored) filling, is used to repair a tooth that is damaged by decay or small cracks. The decayed or cracked portion of the tooth is removed, and then replaced by filling material that is similar to the color of the tooth.

Composite fillings are the most common type of filling material used today, but other types of dental fillings are also available. Composite fillings are popular because they closely match the color of your existing tooth, which makes them a great option for work done on your front teeth or other teeth visible when you smile.
