Understanding Composite Dental Fillings

Composite dental fillings are made from a mixture of tooth-colored plastic and glass particles, providing a natural appearance that blends seamlessly with your existing teeth. This material is a popular choice for treating cavities, minor tooth damage and cosmetic enhancements.

The Composite Filling Procedure

  • Preparation: The decayed or damaged part of the tooth is removed, and the area is prepared for the filling.
  • Bonding: The composite material is applied in layers, and each layer is bonded to the tooth using a special light.
  • Shaping and Polishing: The filling is shaped to match the natural contours of the tooth and polished for a smooth and seamless finish.

Benefits of Composite Dental Fillings

  • Aesthetic Appeal: Composite fillings match the color of your natural teeth, making them virtually indistinguishable and ideal for visible areas.
  • Preservation of Tooth Structure: Unlike traditional amalgam fillings, composite fillings require less removal of healthy tooth structure, promoting tooth preservation.
  • Versatility: Composite fillings are versatile and can be used for both front and back teeth, addressing various dental concerns.
  • Bonding Strength: The bonding process of composite fillings enhances the strength and durability of the treated tooth.
