Advantages of Composite Fillings

Composite fillings, crafted from a mixture of plastic resins and fine glass particles, offer several benefits over traditional silver amalgam fillings:

  • Aesthetically Pleasing: The tooth-colored material of composite fillings blends seamlessly with your natural teeth, providing a more natural appearance than silver amalgam fillings.
  • Tooth Structure Conservation: This type of filling bonds directly to the tooth, which allows for a more conservative preparation and preserves more of your natural tooth structure.
  • Durability: Composite fillings are designed to withstand the forces of chewing and can last many years with proper care.
  • Versatility: Beyond filling cavities, composite material can repair chipped, cracked, or worn teeth, making it a versatile option for various dental issues.
  • Safety: Composite fillings do not contain mercury, making them a safe option for patients concerned about the potential health risks associated with amalgam fillings.

The Process of Getting a Composite Filling

The procedure for placing a composite filling is efficient and straightforward, usually completed in one visit:

  1. Decay Removal: The first step involves removing any decay and cleaning the affected area within the tooth.
  2. Tooth Preparation: Next, the tooth is prepared with a solution that helps the composite material bond effectively.
  3. Filling Placement: The composite resin is then applied in layers to the tooth. Each layer is hardened using a special curing light before the next layer is added.
  4. Shaping and Polishing: Once the filling is in place, it is shaped to match the contours of your natural teeth and polished to a smooth finish, ensuring that it blends indistinguishably with your surrounding teeth.
