Composite filling.

A composite 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 silver filling.

There are many types of filling materials available, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. You and your dentist can discuss the best options for restoring your teeth. Composite fillings, along with composite (tooth colored) fillings, are the most widely used today. An composite filling is more commonly used in the back teeth since the color is not as aesthetic as a composite filling.

As with most dental restorations, composite fillings are not permanent and will someday have to be replaced. They are very durable, and will last many years, giving you a long lasting smile.

Reasons for composite fillings:

  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Decayed teeth
  • Worn teeth

What does getting an composite filling involve?

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 cleansed and carefully prepared before the new filling is placed. If the decay was near the nerve of the tooth, a special medication will be applied for added protection. The silver filling will then be precisely placed, shaped, and polished, restoring your tooth to its original shape and function.

It is normal 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.

You will be given post-care instructions at the completion of your treatment. Good oral hygiene practices, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new fillings.
