Composite Fillings

What are Composite Filings?

Amalgams vs Composite RestorationsA composite or white (tooth coloured) filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling.

There are many types of filling materials available, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. Typically, your filling would be either composite resin or porcelain, the choice depends on your tooth strength. You and your dentist can discuss the best options for restoring your teeth.

Because composite fillings are tooth coloured, they can be closely matched to the colour of existing teeth, and are more aesthetically suited as well as better matched to natural teeth for long lasting function.

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.

Why consider Composite Fillings?

  • Chipped teeth
  • Closing space between two teeth
  • Decayed teeth

How are composite fillings placed?

Composite fillings are usually placed in one appointment. While the tooth is numb, your dentist will remove decay as necessary. The space will then be thoroughly cleaned and carefully prepared before the new filling is placed. The composite filling will then be precisely placed, hardened, shaped, and polished, restoring your tooth to its original shape and function.

It is possible 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.

Good oral hygiene practices, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new fillings.
