Composite Teeth Fillings In Cosmetic Dentistry
A composite (tooth coloured) filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling.
There are many types of filling materials available, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. You and your dentist can discuss the best options for restoring your teeth. Composite fillings, along with silver amalgam fillings, are the most widely used today. Because composite fillings are tooth coloured, they can be closely matched to the colour of existing teeth and are more aesthetically suited for use in front teeth or more visible areas of the mouth.
As with most dental restorations, composite fillings are not permanent and may someday have to be replaced. They are very durable and will last many years, giving you a long lasting, beautiful smile.
Reasons for cosmetic composite teeth fillings:
- Chipped teeth.
- Closing space between two teeth.
- Cracked or broken teeth.
- Decayed teeth.
- Worn teeth.
How are composite fillings placed?
Composite fillings are usually placed in one appointment. While the tooth is numb, your dentist will remove decay as needed. The space will then be thoroughly cleaned and carefully prepared before the new filling is placed. 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, restoring your tooth to its original shape and function.
It is normal to experience sensitivity to hot and cold when composite fillings are first placed, however this will subside shortly after your tooth acclimates to the new filling.
You will be given care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Good oral hygiene practices, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new fillings.

Why Choose Composite Fillings?
Composite fillings offer several advantages over traditional metal fillings. They are more aesthetically pleasing since they blend in with the colour of your teeth. They also require less drilling, which means more of your natural tooth structure is preserved. Composite fillings also bond directly to your tooth, providing additional support and reducing the risk of further damage.
The procedure for getting a composite filling is straightforward and typically requires one appointment. First, the dentist will numb the area around the tooth to be treated. Then, any decay or damage is removed, and the filling material is applied in layers. Each layer is hardened with a special light before the next layer is applied. Once the filling is complete, our dentist will shape and polish it to match the natural contours of your tooth.
Benefits of Composite Teeth Fillings
Composite fillings are an excellent choice for cosmetic dentistry due to their natural appearance. They blend seamlessly with your teeth, so no one will notice you have a filling. They are also durable, long-lasting, and easy to repair if damaged. Additionally, composite fillings require less tooth preparation than traditional fillings, preserving more of your natural tooth structure.
