Composite Fillings

 

Composite Fillings




Say goodbye to your old ugly metal (amalgam) fillings!

The days of ugly metal (amalgam) fillings are long gone. Although they still exist, we have so many more cosmetically pleasing options of which Composite Fillings are one!

 

WHAT ARE COMPOSITE FILLINGS?

Composite is a filled resin material with almost the same workable characteristics as clay, making it easy to shape teeth almost any way we like.  As in the photo, metal (amalgam) fillings are replaced by white composite fillings.

INDICATIONS OF COMPOSITE FILLINGS

  • Replacement of small to medium-sized metal (amalgam) fillings
  • Restoring small to medium-sized cavities.
  • Closing food traps that cause irritation and gum problems.
  • Fill in yellow areas of wear and tear (biting surfaces of lower teeth)
  • Cover open tooth neck areas that are unsightly and sensitive
  • Replace previously stained restorations
  • NEW!!   With the new fiber-reinforced resin fillings, larger restorations are now possible!

ADVANTAGES OF COMPOSITE FILLINGS

  • Same colour as natural teeth
  • Short term alternative to crowning or porcelain inlay / onlays
  • Permits less tooth structure reduction than conventional fillings
  • Bonds chemically to tooth structure and eliminates unnecessary drilling

Although these composite fillings are more prone to staining and chipping than more expensive options, they provide excellent results and repairing them is just as easy!
