Composite Dental Fillings
Fillings A tooth-colored composite filling can be used to repair cracked, fractured and decayed teeth. The procedure involves removing the infected portion of the tooth and filling it with composite material. Tooth-colored fillings have become a popular choice amongst patients for the aesthetic benefits they offer. They can be closely matched to the color of your natural teeth and are cosmetically more suitable for using on the front teeth. Composite fillings can be used to restore: Chipped teeth Broken or cracked teeth Unevenly gapped teeth Decayed teeth Worn teeth Although composite fillings are very durable and last many years, just like most other dental restorations, these are not permanent and may need replacement after some time. The procedure of placing composite dental fillings in Warren on the teeth is a simple one and can be completed within a single visit.
The tooth is numbed by using local anesthesia, and all of the decay is removed. The tooth is then carefully cleaned and flushed and filled with a filling material that matches the natural color of your teeth. If the decay was near the nerve of the tooth, a special medication will be applied for added protection. The composite filling will then be precisely placed, shaped, and polished, to restore your tooth to its original look and function. We are experts at matching the color of the filling with the shade of your teeth. We will give you detailed instructions on how you can care for your newly restored teeth with good oral hygiene practices. Since composite dental fillings are bonded directly to your teeth, we are very conservative in the amount of tooth structure that is removed when cleaning the cavity. Fillings are a highly durable and natural-looking form of restoration.
