Composite Fillings

When treating a cavity, if the decay is not too serious, your dentist will remove the decayed portion of your tooth and fill it with another substance. This procedure is called a filling. There are multiple options for the material to be used in the filling, the most common of which are composite fillings and amalgam fillings.

Dental decay happens when the enamel and dentine of a tooth become softened by acid attack released by bacteria in your mouth, producing a cavity (hole).

A composite filling is also known as a tooth colored filling, since the material used in the filling can be closely matched to the color of your teeth. Composite fillings provide good durability for small to medium cavities in areas that are not subject to wear. They are also particularly well suited for treating front or highly visible teeth because of their natural look.

What can a composite filling be used for?

Decayed tooth (i.e. cavity)

Chipped or broken teeth

Decreasing the gap between teeth

Replace an old silver amalgam filling for an aesthetic tooth colored one.

How it’s done

After the dentist numbs the area where the filling is to be placed, he will remove any decayed portions of the tooth. A substance is then applied to help open up the pores of your teeth for a stronger bond, and hardened with a special light. Once this is complete, the composite filling is applied in thin layers to slowly form the complete filling. After the composite has been hardened, the filling will be smoothed and polished to be comfortable and fit your bite.
