Composite Fillings

Are cavities affecting your ability to smile? Composite fillings are an efficient method for halting cavities in its tracks. At North Rivers Dental Associates, we want you have a beautiful smile for many years to come!

What are Composite Fillings?

Composite fillings are a tooth-colored ceramic or porcelain resin that prevents the spread of cavities. They are used to prevent tooth decay and preserves your natural tooth.


There are many benefits of receiving composite fillings such as:

  • Matches the color of your natural teeth
  • Durability
  • Can replace silver (amalgam) fillings
  • Aesthetically appealing

How Does it Work?

Your dentist will numb the selected area for treatment. A small drill is used to remove the tooth decay and cleanse it to leave room for the filling. After the tooth dries, the composite filling is added directly in the tooth to protect from future tooth decay.
