Composite fillings are used to make your teeth look, function, and feel like your real teeth. The can be used to restore teeth that have cavities, cracks, or are broken. In our office, we have chosen to use composite as our only filling material. If a tooth needs more than just a filling, then stronger materials of porcelain and metal may be used. Some of our patients are very concerned about the materials that we place in their bodies. We can prescribe a blood test that shows sensitivity to dental materials. We have used the results of these blood tests over the years to determine which materials produce the least sensitivity. Your health is important to us.
