Composite fillings also provide an excellent seal on the affected area, so that tooth decay can be prevented. The factors that go into our decision to use composite fillings include:

  • The size of the area that needs to be filled
  • The location of the affected tooth (i.e., a tooth that is heavily relied on for chewing)
  • Allergies the patient might have
  • The preference of the patient regarding the use of metals in the mouth
  • Whether it is necessary cosmetically to have a tooth-colored filling
