The dentists at Brooklyn Dental Centre can fix teeth that are decayed, cracked or fractured using composite fillings.
Composite fillings are used to fix teeth when they have decay, are cracked or are broken.
Composite fillings are recommended for patients because they closely match the colour of your existing teeth.
During your fillings appointment, the decayed portion of your tooth will be removed, and then the area is filled with a filling.
After your appointment your dentist will give you instructions on how to care for your teeth after treatment.
The Brooklyn Dental Centre team encourages good oral hygiene practices, eating habits, and regular dental visits after you receive your filling.
Your fillings may need to be replaced in the future, as is the case with most dental restorations.
Composite fillings are durable and can last to help you maintain a healthy smile.
