What Are Composite Tooth Fillings?
Commonly referred to as tooth-colored fillings, composite fillings are a wonderful cosmetic dentistry option that utilize a naturally colored resin—rather than traditional metal amalgam—to repair damaged teeth.
While they are mainly used to fill cavities and other forms of tooth decay, composite fillings are quite versatile in improving the health and aesthetics of your smile. Thanks to their strength and natural look, composites can also be used to repair chipped and broken teeth and to decrease wide gaps between teeth.
How Composite Fillings Work
To repair your damaged tooth, Dr. Sorgen will first clean the area and remove any damaged or decayed portions of the tooth. Then, he will apply a substance to open the pores of the affected area to help the filling bond to your tooth and increase the strength and longevity of the repair. To mend the damaged tooth, Dr. Sorgen will apply the composite filling in very thin layers, using a specialized light to harden each layer individually. Finally, our dentist will shape and polish the composite to improve aesthetics and prevent unnecessary wear.
What Are the Advantages of Composite Fillings?
Many people are drawn to composites because of their aesthetic advantages. Unlike more traditional cavity repair options which cause dark patches on your teeth that are noticeable when you smile or talk, composite fillings are an effective solution that allow you to maintain—and even improve—the cosmetic beauty of your smile. Dr. Sorgen can blend the shade of the resin to closely match that of your natural tooth, leaving you with a beautiful white smile.
Additionally, because they bond with teeth more easily than metal, composite fillings often require less of the tooth to be removed before making the repair. Their strength can also help to prevent further breakage and protect the tooth from wear.
