With the discovery of this material and its development as content, composite, tooth-colored fillings are now used in almost all filling cases. These filling materials are used not only in cases of rotten teeth but also in cases where aesthetics need to be corrected and satisfactory results are produced.
Some cases where composite fillings are used:
- Closing the gaps between the front teeth (diastema closure)
- Restoration of broken front teeth
- Restoration of rotten teeth
