Blend, Repair, Renew with Composite Fillings

Composite fillings are a popular and versatile dental treatment used to restore teeth that have been damaged by decay, fractures, or wear. These fillings are made of a tooth-colored composite resin material that blends seamlessly with the natural color of your teeth, providing a durable and aesthetically pleasing solution.

What are Composite Fillings?

Composite fillings, also known as tooth-colored fillings, are a type of dental restoration that is used to repair teeth affected by cavities or minor damage. Unlike traditional amalgam (silver) fillings, composite fillings are made of a mixture of fine glass particles and a resin material. This composite material can be precisely matched to the shade of your existing teeth, making the filling virtually indistinguishable.

How Do Composite Fillings Work?

The process of placing a composite filling begins with the removal of any decayed or damaged tooth structure. The affected area is thoroughly cleaned and prepared for the filling. The composite resin material is then applied in layers, carefully shaped to recreate the natural contours of the tooth. A special curing light is used to harden each layer of the composite material. Once the filling is in place, Dr. Zemskova will make any necessary adjustments to ensure a comfortable bite and a seamless fit with your surrounding teeth.

Composite fillings provide excellent durability and can withstand normal chewing forces. They also bond directly to the tooth structure, which helps to strengthen and support the remaining tooth. The result is a restored tooth that looks and functions naturally.
