COMPOSITE

ANOTHER WORD FOR FILLING OR BONDING

You may find that you are having any of the following;

  • Decay on a portion of any tooth
  • Desire to replace old-fashioned mercury (silver) fillings
  • Sensitivity to cold
  • Broke/chipped a part of your tooth off

The Solution:

A composite filling is a tooth colored quartz-like material. After tooth decay is removed and cleaned, this tooth colored material is layered into the tooth. Each layer is hardened or cured with highly intense visible light, and the final surface is shaped and polished to match the tooth. The final restoration is natural in appearance.

Advantages:

Composite fillings are more than just attractive. They are environmentally non-toxic because they use no mercury. They are stronger because they bond directly to the surface of the tooth. They protect the tooth from fracturing.

Alternative:

In cases of extreme decay or fracture, a crown or inlay/onlay maybe placed.
