Fillings are used to when there is a small fracture, or small decay in the tooth. Composite is a resin and glass mixture that is tooth colored. Composite resins come in many different colors so the Dr. Ray can match your tooth color. Composite fillings conserve tooth structure and allow the dentist to remove minimal amounts of tooth before repairing it. At Giant Smiles Dental-Manhattan Beach we know you care about how you look so we only place tooth colored fillings!
