Enjoy Natural-Looking Restorative Care with Composite Fillings
A composite filling, also known as a tooth-colored filling, uses a special combination of plastic and glass to restore teeth affected by decay. The great benefit of using composite fillings over traditional fillings is that they blend in with teeth, creating results that look natural while also providing effective structural support.
What to Expect
Once Dr. Alexander has prepped your tooth, the filling material will be put in place and hardened with a special light. Then, Dr. Alexander will shape your filling so that your bite fits together properly. We will finish by polishing your filling to help prevent staining and wear.
The Benefits of Composite Fillings
The biggest benefit of composite fillings is their natural appearance, but it’s not the only one. Composites are also more supportive of the tooth’s natural structure than amalgam fillings are. This supportiveness leads to fewer incidents of breakage and bacterial reinvasion. Composite fillings are also resistant to changes in temperature.
