Dental Composite Fillings
At our dental clinic, we understand that a damaged or decayed tooth can be unsightly and uncomfortable. That's why we offer composite fillings as a solution to repair and restore teeth that have been affected by decay or injury. Composite fillings are made of a mixture of plastic and fine glass particles, which can be matched to the color of the tooth, making them an excellent option for teeth that are visible when talking or smiling. They bond directly to the tooth, which helps to strengthen and support the remaining tooth structure, and they can last for several years with proper care and maintenance. They can be used to repair cavities, chips, and cracks, and can also be used to change the shape or color of a tooth. Our team will be happy to assess whether composite fillings are the right choice for you and your needs.
The Benefits of Composite Fillings: A Solution for Damaged and Decayed Teeth
Composite fillings are a great option for restoring teeth that have been damaged by decay or injury. They can be used to repair cavities, chips, and cracks, and can also be used to change the shape or color of a tooth. If you have a tooth that needs repair, our team will be happy to assess whether composite fillings are the right choice for you.
Tooth decay is one of the most common chronic health conditions. Fortunately, there are ways to prevent it, and in cases where decay is unavoidable, a dental filling is an affordable, natural-looking, and safe solution. Not only are our fillings at Generations Family Dentistry some of the most aesthetic restorations available today, but they are strong and long-lasting as well.
Composite fillings can last for several years with proper care and maintenance. Regular check-ups and good oral hygiene are important to ensure the longevity of the filling.
Composite fillings are bonded to the tooth, which helps to strengthen and support the remaining tooth structure.
Preservation of tooth structure
Composite fillings can be placed directly into the cavity, so less tooth structure needs to be removed compared to traditional metal fillings. This helps to preserve more of the natural tooth, which can be beneficial in the long-term.
