METAL FREE COMPOSITE FILLINGS

A composite filling is a white or off-white tooth-colored plastic and glass mixture that is used to restore decayed teeth and fill cavities.

What Are Composite Fillings?

The Advantages of Composites

Traditional fillings use metals like amalgam, which are easily visible in the mouth. With fillings made of composite, your restorations are more discreet since they are shaded to match the color of the natural tooth. This is necessary for restoration purposes.

Composite fillings chemically bond to the tooth, unlike metal fillings. This is great because it provides better long-term support for the tooth. Composites have the added benefit of not only filling in tooth decay but also to repair chipped, broken, or worn teeth.

How to Treat Cavities

Composite fillings are applied much like a traditional filling. To fix cavities with fillings, the tooth is often numbed with local anesthesia to make the process painless. Then, your dentist will apply layers of the composite resin until the cavity is filled. A special heated light is applied to make the composite filling dry much faster. Once the composite is added, it’s then molded to better fit the affected area. Finally, the filling is then prepared to better handle and prevent staining and wear and tear.
