What are Composite Fillings?
Composite fillings, often referred to as tooth-coloured fillings, are a modern dental restoration option. They are composed of a blend of fine glass particles and acrylic resins, which can be shaded to match the exact colour of your natural teeth. This makes them virtually indistinguishable, ensuring your smile remains as beautiful as it was before.
The Composite Filling Procedure
The process of receiving a composite filling is typically a straightforward and comfortable experience. To minimise any discomfort, your dentist will begin by numbing the area surrounding the affected tooth.
The decayed or damaged part of the tooth is carefully removed, leaving the healthy tooth structure intact. The composite material is then skill-fully applied in layers and hardened using a special light. This process ensures a secure, strong bond with your tooth, restoring its integrity and preventing further damage.
Advantages of Composite Fillings
Composite fillings offer several advantages. Firstly, their natural appearance makes them an ideal choice for visible teeth. They are strong, provide a tight seal against the tooth, and require less removal of healthy tooth structure compared to traditional amalgam fillings. This means less of your natural tooth is sacrificed for the restoration.
How Long Do Composite Fillings Last?
Composite fillings are durable and, with proper care and oral hygiene, can last for many years. Their longevity depends on factors such as your overall dental health, your oral hygiene practices, and the specific location of the filling.
