Composite dental fillings, also known as tooth-colored fillings, have revolutionized modern dentistry by providing patients with a superior alternative to traditional silver amalgam fillings. At Grove Dental Center, we are committed to delivering the highest quality of care, which is why we exclusively use composite filling materials. This choice aligns with our dedication to enhancing both the aesthetics and long-term oral health of our patients.
One of the primary advantages of composite fillings is their ability to bond directly to the tooth structure. This bond not only restores the tooth’s integrity but also reduces the risk of future breakage or fracturing. Additionally, composite fillings offer insulation against temperature fluctuations caused by hot and cold foods and beverages, ensuring your comfort and minimizing sensitivity. Furthermore, composite fillings also create better seals around the damaged area, which enhances the tooth’s resistance to decay and prevents leaks. These fillings are versatile, making it possible to correct cavities that may be too small for amalgam fillings to address adequately.
Unlike silver amalgam fillings, composite fillings are repairable and replaceable without necessitating removal of the entire filling. Moreover, they contain no mercury or other metals, ensuring their safety and reducing concerns about potential health risks.
When you choose composite dental fillings, you can expect a filling color-matched to your natural teeth, resulting in a seamless, beautiful smile. Most importantly, these fillings can typically be placed in a single appointment, saving you time and discomfort.
When you receive a filling, Dr. Sushma Halthore, Dr. Rashi or Dr. Milena Narsesyan will first numb the area to ensure your comfort, and will thoroughly clean the tooth to remove all traces of decay. The filling will then be placed, shaped to match the contours of your tooth and hardened to give you a lasting restoration.
