The tooth colored composite fillings are done for
a. Chips/rough spots/cavities/cracks: These can be filled with a tooth-coloured material called composite. The colour of the composite can be chosen so that it matches the color of your teeth.
b. Gaps between the teeth: Small gaps can be closed by applying composite material between the teeth.
c. Broken or crooked teeth: Mild chips of enamel or mild alignment corrections can be done with composite fillings.
This is ideal when you want to alter the shape of your front teeth. This is a simple inexpensive way to correct chipped, cracked or irregularly shaped teeth. Teeth that appear too long can be made shorter by selectively reshaping the enamel.

Often these procedures can be done in a single visit without the use of anesthesia.
