Composite Fillings at Advanced Dental Partners

Composite Fillings

Composite dental fillings, also known as tooth-colored or white fillings, are a popular restorative option used to repair teeth damaged by decay or minor fractures. These fillings are composed of a mixture of plastic resin and fine glass particles, creating a durable and natural-looking material that blends seamlessly with the surrounding teeth.

The procedure involves removing the decayed or damaged portion of the tooth, cleaning the area, and then applying layers of the composite resin. Thereafter, each layer is hardened using a special light, ensuring a strong bond to the tooth structure.  This process allows the dentist to sculpt and shape the filling, preserving the tooth’s natural appearance and function.

One of the primary advantages of composite fillings is their aesthetic appeal, as they can be matched to the color of the existing teeth.  Therefore, they are virtually indistinguishable from regular, healthy teeth. Additionally, they require less removal of healthy tooth structure compared to traditional amalgam fillings. While they may not be as suitable for large cavities or high-pressure areas, composite fillings offer a conservative and effective solution for restoring the health and appearance of teeth.
