About Composite Filling Treatment

Composite filling is also known as white fillings. A composite filling is a synthetic type of material and made of glass and acrylic resins and is the same color as a tooth. Composite fillings look natural and can blend with the rest of the teeth. It is able to match the shade and texture of the natural teeth. Composite fillings last around 7 to 10 years, but in big majority of the cases composite fillings can last for a lifetime. Patients undergo composite fillings if they have

  • Cavities
  • Chipped tooth
  • Wearing in the tooth

Composite Filling Procedure

The procedure will start by the dentist giving the patient local anesthetic to numb the area. A small dental drill will be used to remove the decay or any weak part of the tooth. Then the dentist will clean the tooth by blowing water and air onto the tooth. The tooth will be dried and then etched with a mild acid, which will help the filling material to firmly adhere to the tooth. The next step is for dental cement to be applied to coat the surface of the tooth before inserting the composite material. This will be pushed into the tooth cavity and then shaped as needed. Then the dentist will shine a bright light inside the mouth, which will activate and harden the material. Finally the tooth will be trimmed and polished for a new fresh finish.
