At Arcadia Dentistry, we offer composite dental fillings, a modern solution for restoring teeth affected by decay or damage. Our skilled dental team is committed to preserving your oral health and enhancing the appearance of your smile with these safe and effective fillings.
What Are Composite Dental Fillings?
Composite fillings, made from a tooth-colored resin material, are used to repair cavities and restore teeth to their natural function and appearance. They are an excellent alternative to traditional amalgam fillings, offering a more aesthetically pleasing and less invasive option. These fillings blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, providing a discreet solution for treating dental decay or minor fractures.
The Process of Getting Composite Fillings
The process for composite fillings is simple and usually completed in one visit. After numbing the area, our dentist will remove the decay and prepare the tooth. The composite resin is then carefully applied in layers, shaped to match the contours of your tooth and hardened with a special curing light. Finally, the filling is polished to a smooth finish, ensuring a comfortable and natural feel.
Benefits of Composite Dental Fillings
- Natural Appearance: The tooth-colored material matches your natural teeth, maintaining the aesthetics of your smile.
- Preservation of Tooth Structure: Composite fillings bond directly to the tooth, requiring less removal of the tooth structure than amalgam fillings.
- Durability: Designed to withstand the forces of chewing, they are a lasting solution for tooth restoration.
- Versatility: Can be used to repair decay, chipped, cracked, or worn teeth.
- Safety: Free from mercury, making them a safe option for most patients.
