Having a cavity on a back tooth is bad enough, but having one on a tooth where the world can see it? That’s worse! Fortunately, Dr. Donald Kim and the team at Vista Dental have the perfect solution for your smile: composite fillings.

Composite fillings are made of a blend of powdered glass and a plastic resin. One reason composite fillings are popular is because the material can be shaded to match the color of your tooth, making it virtually unnoticeable to other people. They are typically used for smaller fillings in a tooth that is easily visible but can be used for larger cavities as well. The dentist does not need to remove as much tooth material as with other types of fillings, and the composite will bond directly with the tooth’s surface. A composite filling can often be placed in a single visit, but in some situations, two visits may be required. Once the filling is in place and has been cured, no one will ever know you had a cavity!
