What Are Composite Fillings?

Composite fillings are tooth-colored are non-permanent fillings made of resin. This type of filling closely resembles natural teeth and is much less noticeable than other types of fillings. This filling type is widely used and is aesthetically-suited for front tooth use though it can also be used for the back teeth. Not only are composites flexible, but they are also durable and bond directly with the tooth’s surface. When you opt for composite fillings over other types of fillings, more of the natural tooth can be preserved, and minimal drilling will be involved. The majority of these fillings can be completed in one appointment and will ensure you have a beautiful, long-lasting smile.

The Benefits of Composite Fillings

A composite tooth filling can offer patients who need it a wide range of benefits. Whether you need one or multiple, white composite fillings will ensure your smile is beautiful and healthy. The benefits of composite fillings include, but are not limited to, the following:

 

  • Practically invisible because they are color-matched with your natural teeth
  • Can fill small-to-moderate cavities in teeth positioned in the front or back
  • Bind well to enamel so are unlikely to pop loose or loosen
  • Versatile enough to also be able to fix superficial damage like cracks or chips
  • They are not affected by temperature and are not prone to expand or contract
  • Less drilling is required with these than with other types of fillings
  • Once applied, a special light helps bond the filling quickly to the tooth

The Composite Filling Procedure

At the beginning of the composite filling procedure, one of our highly-trained dentists will use a local anesthetic to numb your gums, teeth, and surrounding area. This is done to prevent pain and lessen discomfort. From there, any existing decay will be removed with a drill during a process that takes a few minutes and may cause slight pressure. The next step is molding the filling to your tooth to be the right shape and restore your tooth to its natural appearance. A special light will be used to quickly harden the various layers of the composite filling during this process.
