Our dentists and team prioritize your dental health and offer composite dental fillings as an excellent solution for repairing and restoring your teeth. Our commitment to providing you with top-notch care means choosing the best materials and techniques, and composite fillings align perfectly with that philosophy.

Composite fillings have become the preferred choice for several reasons:

  • Aesthetic Appeal: Composite fillings are tooth-colored, ensuring a seamless blend with your natural teeth. This aesthetic advantage makes them an ideal choice for visible areas, as they maintain the natural appearance of your smile.
  • Enhanced Structural Support: Unlike amalgam fillings, composite materials bond directly to your tooth’s structure. This bond not only provides increased support but also reduces the risk of fractures and breaks in the treated tooth.
  • Temperature Insulation: Composite fillings offer better insulation against temperature changes caused by hot or cold foods and beverages, minimizing discomfort.
  • Superior Seal: Composite materials create a better seal around the edges of the damaged area, making them more resistant to decay and leaks.
  • Versatility: Composite fillings can repair even small cavities that may be too minor for amalgam fillings.
  • Preservation: Repairs or replacements can be carried out without having to remove the filling from the tooth, thus preserving more of your natural tooth structure.
  • Safety: Composite fillings contain no mercury or other metals, ensuring a safer and healthier treatment option.
  • Long-Term Oral Health: By choosing composite fillings, you are investing in your long-term oral health and a beautiful smile.

When you visit us for a composite filling, our skilled dentists will meticulously select a shade of filling material that harmonizes with your natural tooth color. The procedure involves cleaning the damaged tooth, removing any compromised tissue, placing the filling, and then curing and polishing it, all in just one convenient appointment.
