Composite Fillings in Mill Creek WA
New composite dental fillings are a tooth colored material that can be used to restore cavities instead of the old and traditional silver fillings. Composite fillings have become the preferred choice for many dentists because they can be custom matched to the natural teeth. Composite fillings also have a unique property, which allows them to bond to the surrounding tooth structure offering greater strength and retention.
There are different types of composite material, each have their own advantages and disadvantages. These alternatives for your tooth restoration materials are best discussed with our dentist Dr. Szerszen.
Composite tooth filling materials can be utilized for a chipped tooth, cracked, worn, broken or decayed, or to restore cavities. Composite fillings may also be used to close the space (gaps) between teeth.
Composite fillings can easily be placed during one appointment. At the appointment, Dr. Szerszen will numb the tooth and carefully remove any decay and clean the surface of the tooth. The composite filling will then be placed and shaped to restore the tooth to its original contour.
You may experience sensitivity to hot and cold following placement of the material, however this will subside as the tooth heals and becomes accustomed to the filling.
Following each visit with our dentist, you will receive instructions for how to best care for your new composite fillings. Remember regular dental visits combined with good eating habits and oral hygiene help lengthen the life of your fillings.
