Composite Fillings (Tooth Colored Fillings)

Composite Tooth-Colored Fillings: Blending Functionality with Aesthetics

In our commitment to providing advanced and aesthetically pleasing dental solutions, we offer composite tooth-colored fillings – a durable and visually appealing alternative to traditional amalgam fillings. These fillings are not only effective in restoring the functionality of decayed teeth but also blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, maintaining the beauty of your smile.

What are Composite Fillings?

Composite fillings are made from a mixture of plastic and fine glass particles. They are designed to match the color of your natural teeth, making them an excellent choice for repairing cavities in visible areas. Their versatility also allows them to be used for repairing chipped, broken, or worn teeth.

Advantages of Composite Fillings

  • Aesthetic Appeal: They blend naturally with your tooth, providing a more attractive finish.
  • Preservation of Tooth Structure: Less tooth structure needs to be removed compared with amalgam fillings, allowing for a more conservative repair.
  • Bonding to Tooth Structure: Composite fillings bond directly to the tooth surface, providing additional support.
  • Versatility: They can be used for a variety of cosmetic improvements, such as changing the color or shape of teeth.

The Procedure

The process for placing a composite filling is simple and typically completed in one visit. After removing the decay and cleaning the affected area, the composite material is applied in layers and hardened with a curing light. The filling is then shaped and polished to match the rest of the tooth.
