Composite dental fillings offer a modern solution for restoring teeth affected by decay, cracks or fractures. Composed of a tooth-colored blend of plastic and fine glass particles, these fillings are meticulously designed to blend seamlessly with the natural appearance of your teeth, offering both strength and aesthetics. This makes composite fillings an excellent choice for those who prioritize a natural look in their dental restorations.

The process of receiving a composite filling is straightforward and can typically be completed within a single visit. Our dentists will first carefully remove the decayed or damaged portion of your tooth. Following this, the area is thoroughly cleaned to ensure the removal of all decay and prepare it for the filling. The composite material is then applied in layers, with each layer being cured or hardened using a specialized light. This methodical approach allows the filling to bond strongly to the tooth, providing a restoration that not only looks natural but also restores functionality. A local anesthetic will be provided to ensure your comfort throughout this procedure.

Composite fillings offer several advantages over their amalgam counterparts. The most notable benefit is their aesthetic appeal, as they can be closely matched to the color of your existing teeth. This feature is particularly beneficial for fillings in visible areas, ensuring that your smile remains bright and uniform. Additionally, composite fillings bond directly to the tooth surface, which helps to support the remaining tooth structure and minimize the risk of breakage. This bond also allows for a more conservative preparation, meaning more of your natural tooth can be preserved.
