Composite Fillings

individual_pic A composite (tooth colored) filling is used to replace old silver fillings, damaged or decayed teeth and repair a tooth that is affected by cracks and fractures. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling that is invisible in the smile, beautifully restoring teeth to health, strength and appearance. As with most dental restorations, composite fillings are not permanent and may someday have to be replaced. They are very durable and will last many years, giving you a long lasting, beautiful smile.

Reasons for composite fillings:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Closing space between two teeth
  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Decayed teeth
  • Worn teeth
  • Replace old silver fillings

How are composite fillings placed?

Composite fillings are usually placed in one appointment. While the tooth is numb, our dentists will remove decay as needed. The  pace will then be thoroughly cleaned and carefully prepared before the new filling is placed. If the decay was near the nerve of the tooth, a special medication will be applied for added protection. The composite filling will then be precisely placed, shaped, and polished, restoring your tooth to its original shape and function.

It is normal to experience sensitivity to hot and cold when composite fillings are first placed, however this will subside shortly after your tooth acclimates to the new filling.

You will be given care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Good oral hygiene practices, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new fillings.
