Composite Dental Filling

If you require a little to medium filling and want to keep your teeth looking natural, you should receive a composite filling. If you have a known metal allergy or are prone to allergies, you may wish to choose a composite filling because it does not include metal. Other potential advantages of composite fillings include their capacity to strengthen teeth through the bonding process, preserve natural tooth structure during implantation, and be utilized to repair broken, worn, or chipped teeth. Schedule a consultation with Bell Dental Care to find out if composite fillings are correct for you!

What Are Composite Fillings?

Dental composite fillings are regular dental fillings that have been colored to match the natural color of your original tooth. Resin fillings, white fillings, and tooth-colored fillings are other names for them.

They serve the same purpose as regular fillings in that they fix cracks, fissures, and decay in impacted teeth. Our dentist will remove the decayed area or impacted section of the tooth and replace it with a composite filling.

Benefits of Composite Fillings

Unlike amalgam fillings, which are composed of metal and can be visible, composite fillings are meant to look like your natural teeth, so they blend in and are less noticeable when you smile. This makes them an excellent choice if you need to alter the appearance of a tooth, for example, changing a stained tooth, repairing chips or mild rot, and filling in gaps between neighboring teeth.

Because the pit groundwork for composite fillings is more preservationist than that of a traditional amalgam or silver filling, they don't require as much boring as other materials, allowing more of the tooth's structure to work with.

Unlike silver amalgam or gold fillings, the composite pitch is kinder on your mouth's delicate tissues, such as your cheeks, tongue, and gums.

If the composite filling sustains damage, our dental specialist may be able to repair it.

Cosmetic Fillings Procedure

First, we'll use a local anesthetic to numb your teeth so you don't feel any pain or discomfort. The decayed tooth structure will next be removed, and the resulting hole will be filled with composite resin.

Our dentists go to considerable lengths to ensure that the composite resin matches the natural color of your teeth. You won't be able to see the difference between your white filling and your natural tooth structure this way.
