Composite Fillings

When treating a cavity the dentist will remove the decayed portion of your tooth. The tooth is then restored with a resin material that esthetically matches the natural tooth. 

A resin filling is also known as a tooth colored filling, since the material used in the filling can be closely matched to the color of your teeth. Resin fillings provide good durability for small to medium cavities, and the procedure typically involves removing less of a tooth. We use resin fillings in place of traditional amalgam (silver) fillings. The amalgam does not bond to the tooth leaving a crevice where bacteria can enter and cause decay while a resin filling bonds to the tooth. Best of all they look so natural you can't tell the difference.

When can a composite filling be used for?

  • Decayed tooth (i.e. cavity)
  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Decreasing the gap between teeth

How its done
After the dentist anesthetizes the area where the filling is to be placed the decay will be removed. A bonding agent and the resin material will then be applied to the tooth. It will be hardened and cured with a special LED light.  After the composite has hardened, the filling will be smoothened and polished to be comfortable and fit your bite.
