What Is A Composite Filling?

A composite filling is a white or tooth colored plastic and glass mixture that is used to restore decayed teeth. Composites can also be used to improve the aesthetics of a smile by changing the color of the teeth or reshaping a disfigured tooth. While all general dentists place fillings, you may choose to seek a doctor for white fillings to improve the esthetics and health of your mouth. Your doctor can fix cavities with fillings using this composite material to improve your oral health.

What to Expect from Your Composite Dental Fillings in Fairfield, CT

First, all signs of tooth decay must be removed before your fillings may be placed. Composite fillings are applied in layers. Our doctors will choose the shaded material, ensuring that it matches your natural tooth color. Next, a layer of resin will be placed and then heated with a special bonding light. This light expedites the hardening process. Another layer is then placed, bolstering your tooth structure. Once all of the layers have been completed, our doctors will shape and polish the tooth.

Demartin Dental Associates prefer composite fillings, as they can be utilized in visible areas such as the front teeth to repair chips or stains. Unlike traditional metal fillings, the resin material blends in with the tooth and is undetectable to others. Many patients choose to replace their metal fillings with resin as part of a smile makeover. Composite fillings can also strengthen a tooth that has been fractured or has little structure left, due to the layered application process. The resin is bonded to both the tooth and to the previous layer, rendering a solid restoration to absorb the force of biting down.

For a highly aesthetic way to repair chipped, decayed, or broken teeth, consider composite fillings. Contact Demartin Dental Associates today for your personalized consultation in Fairfield, CT.
