Smile Brighter And Healthier With Composite Fillings

A healthy smile is essential for your overall well-being. When it comes to repairing cavities or addressing minor tooth damage, composite fillings have revolutionized how we restore teeth at Premier Dentistry of the Palm Beaches in West Palm Beach, FL.

What Are Composite Fillings?

Composite fillings, often called tooth-colored or white fillings, are popular for repairing damaged or decayed teeth. These fillings are made of a mixture of tooth-colored resin and glass or ceramic particles, creating a material that closely matches the appearance of natural teeth.

How Are They Placed?

Our dentist will assess the extent of tooth damage or decay to determine if a filling is the appropriate treatment. If necessary, we will administer a local anesthetic to numb the area around the affected tooth, ensuring your comfort during the procedure. The damaged or decayed portion of the tooth is carefully removed using specialized instruments, leaving behind healthy tooth structure. The composite filling material is applied in layers and bonded to the tooth using a curing light. Each layer is shaped and hardened before adding the next one, ensuring a precise fit. After all the layers are in place, our dentist will sculpt and polish the filling to match the contours of your natural tooth.

What Are the Benefits of Composite Fillings?

  • Aesthetic Appeal: Composite fillings are customized to match the color and shade of your natural teeth, making them virtually undetectable.
  • Minimally Invasive: Less tooth structure must be removed than traditional amalgam fillings, preserving more of your natural tooth.
  • Strong and Durable: Composite fillings are durable and can withstand the forces of chewing and biting for many years.
  • Mercury-Free: Unlike amalgam fillings, composite fillings are mercury-free, eliminating concerns about potential health risks.
  • Versatility: Composite fillings can be used for front and back teeth, providing a versatile solution for various dental needs.
