Brushing alone isn't always enough, particularly when it comes to those hard-to-reach areas of the mouth. Your toothbrush would have a hard time getting through the tiny cracks and grooves on your teeth. If left untreated, those small areas can lead to tooth decay.
Composite fillings (tooth-colored fillings) are used to patch teeth that have decay, cracks, or breaks. The decayed or affected part of the tooth will be removed, and a tooth-colored composite filling will be placed in its place.
Composite fillings are tooth-colored, they can be closely matched to the color of existing teeth and are more aesthetically suited for use in front teeth or the more visible areas of the teeth.
