The Benefits of Composite Fillings

Composite fillings are made of ceramic and plaster compounds and are designed to be less conspicuous as metal fillings. Initially used primarily on the front, more visible teeth, composite filling technology has now advanced to the point that composite fillings can be utilized on the molars, which receive more strenuous use and wear.

Some benefits of composite filling procedures include:

  • Preserving more of your natural tooth
  • Matching composite materials to your natural tooth color
  • Minimal special care or treatment beyond normal, good oral hygiene

Composite fillings do take longer to administer, but this should not deter you. During your visit, you will receive a local anesthetic at the site of the filling, ensuring that you don’t feel pain in your gums or teeth during the procedure. Your dentist will then remove the damaged portion of your tooth, apply a resin, and then cure the resin with a handheld light. The curing of the filling takes less than a minute. The filling is then shaped and polished.
