Composite Fillings

Overview: Composite fillings are free of metal and white in color. Their primary purpose is to restore portions of teeth that have decayed. These fillings are used to improve the visual appearance of a smile. Composite fillings are bonded to the teeth, and have a normal appearance.

Dentist have the ability to repair cavities using composite fillings, and may be the most preferred option for the patient. Composite fillings are placed in the tooth much like a regular filling. The standard procedure for filling a cavity involves using local anesthesia to numb the problematic area, providing for relief during the procedure. The filling is added to the tooth in layers, with a curing light used to strengthen each layer as it is applied. Upon the fillings completion, it is molded to adhere to the tooth. Polishing is the finishing touch.

There are numerous advantages in the use of composite fillings. Ordinary fillings are more noticeable, as they use a combination of metals. Composite fillings are less noticeable, as the coloring is made to match the color of the tooth. The ingredients of a composite filling ensure that the material has a stronger bond on the tooth, adding to the necessary support needed by the tooth. Composite fillings are adaptable, and have multiple uses, besides fillings. Worn down, fragmented or broken teeth can all be repaired using the material used in composite fillings.
