Composite fillings are more lasting and famous because of their aesthetics. They appear more natural because they can be adjusted to match your natural tooth color. Prestigious Smiles Family Dentistry is happy to answer any questions you may have, and we look forward to assisting your entire family during the process.

What Is Composite Filling?

Composite treatment is one way to deal with your tooth cavities. We restore your oral health by using composite resin material which is the most excellent replacement for old amalgam fillings. It is a tooth-colored material that blends with your tooth's color and gives you a natural appearance. 

Materials Used

Materials used in composite fillings have a variety of properties. They do not contain any harmful materials like metal or mercury; hence, they are safe to use.

Composite Fillings Benefits

Composite fillings give you an aesthetically pleasing alternative to traditional amalgam fillings.  They give you a lovely smile and boost your self-esteem. We can fix cavities with composite fillings and provide you with the best results.

Here are other benefits that composite fillings bring:

  • Composite fillings are long-lasting and comfortable, with an average lifespan of five to seven years.
  • They give you a more natural appearance, being customized with virtually undetectable tooth color.
  • In most cases, it can be finished in a single visit. 
  • They are fracture-resistant.
  • Minor imperfections, such as a small chip in a tooth, can be repaired with composite fillings.
  • Temperature does not affect the material, so no need to be concerned about them expanding and shrinking. 
  • No health risk associated with mercury.

Factors Affecting Composite Fillings

  • Location of the fillings, e.g., fillings in molars experiences chewing pressures that may wear them out faster.
  • Size of the filling, i.e., smaller fillings last longer
  • Bruxism puts excessive pressure on your fillings
  • Sugary and acidic foods could cause problems with your composite fillings.
