We create all of our composite fillings using BPA-free, resin-based components. These resin-based composite materials are guaranteed to be safe and effective. Our composite fillings will form a resilient bond with the affected teeth, making it possible for your dentist to preserve any healthy tooth structure that remains. Composite fillings are longer lasting and safer than silver fillings. Composite fillings contract and stabilize the tooth. Silver fillings, by contrast, tend to swell and weaken the tooth. This can cause the tooth to crack and break, requiring further intervention to repair it.
How are Composite Fillings Installed?
Composite fillings can be created during one visit to our office. We will apply an anesthetic to the teeth and gums of the patient. Then carefully remove any and all decayed material and replace it with a form fitted filling. Finally, we will check the contours of the filling, review the patient’s bite, and ask the patient how he or she feels with the new appliance in place. If any changes need to be made, we will be able to do it immediately in most cases.
