Composite Fillings

A composite (tooth shaded) filling is utilized to fix a tooth that is influenced by decay, breaks, cracks, and so forth. The decayed or affected part of the tooth will be evacuated and after that loaded up with a composite filling.

There are numerous sorts of filling materials accessible, each with its favorable circumstances and drawbacks. You and your dental practitioner can talk about the best choices for re-establishing your teeth. Composite fillings, alongside silver amalgam fillings, are the most broadly utilized today.

Since composite fillings are tooth hued, they can be firmly coordinated to the shade of existing teeth, and are all the more stylishly suited for use in front teeth or the more noticeable zones of the teeth.

Purposes behind
Composite(white) Fillings?

  • Chipped teeth
  • Closing space between two teeth
  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Decayed teeth
  • Worn teeth

What are the benefits of tooth-colored fillings?

In addition to being shaded to match the color of your teeth, composite resin fillings have many advantages, including the following:

  • They strengthen your teeth. In order to make sure amalgam fillings stayed in place, more of the tooth structure had to be removed. Composite resin is very flexible and bonds well to teeth, which means that more of your natural tooth can be preserved. It also supports the natural structure of your tooth, restoring its full function and strength.
  • They do not come out as easily as amalgam. Although amalgam is very durable, tooth-colored fillings can stay adhered to your teeth through normal wear and tear much better than amalgam fillings.
  • They protect your teeth from hot and cold. Patients often complained about sensitivity to hot and cold with metal fillings, but composite resin shields your tooth from these sensations more effectively.
  • They look natural. To the untrained eye, composite resin fillings can be practically invisible!


composite resin follows this simple process:

  • Cofer administers a local anesthetic to numb the area.
  • Then he cleans out the decayed portions of enamel and ensures that the tooth is free of bacteria.
  • Using the shade of resin that best matches your teeth, he applies the putty-like material into the hole, molds and shapes it, and smooths it out.
  • He then uses a light to harden the filling.
  • Once it is set, he continues to fine-tune the filling, ensuring your bite feels comfortable.

The Dental Implant Procedure

All treatment begins with a thorough exam and consultation. Typically, the process can take from 3 to 6 months. In some cases, the process may take longer because additional treatments, such as bone grafting, may be required to build up the bone so it can support an implant. The procedure and time frame depends on several factors:

  • Dental health
  • Condition and quality of the jawbone
  • Number of teeth involved

Dental implant restorations usually take place over a few appointments and involve several steps:

The First Step

A dentist or oral surgeon will cut into the gum to expose the bone. One or more implants are precisely placed into the jawbone to mirror the location of the root of the missing natural tooth.

The Second Step

After appropriate healing has taken place to allow for the implant to fuse within the bone, impressions of the teeth and bite are taken to custom-fabricate a connector post or abutment, and crown.

The Final Step

At the final appointment, the oral surgeon reopens the gum to expose the implant. The abutment and crown are attached to the implant, completing the process.

Some patients may experience minor soreness after the dental implant procedure which can be treated with over the counter ibuprofen medication.

Do tooth-colored fillings require special care?

Other than your normal oral care routine, which should include the following habits, tooth-colored fillings do not require extra special care:

  • Brushing twice a day.
  • Flossing one a day.
  • Visiting us twice a year for a checkup and cleaning.
