    Composite Fillings

    What Are Composite Fillings

    Composite fillings are made from resin that resembles the natural shade of teeth. It contains a plastic mixture that is reinforced with a powdered glass material. It has a wide shade range, and our dentist can select the one that closely resembles your natural teeth.

    Compared to metal restorations, our composite fillings in Troy, MI, provide a more aesthetic appearance. Moreover, the material bonds strongly with the tooth surface and offers long-lasting durability.

    Benefits of Composite Fillings

    At our Troy practice, we provide tooth-colored composite fillings to address functional and cosmetic dental concerns. Their benefits include:

    • Aesthetic appearance: Composite resin is white and slightly translucent, similar to the tooth enamel. It provides a seamless blend with your natural teeth.
    • Durable: It is a resilient material that can withstand strong biting forces, making it a great choice for both front and back teeth.
    • Improved functions: These fillings can restore the structure of your teeth and allow you to bite and chew more comfortably.
    • Reduced sensitivity: Unlike metal fillings, composite resin does not conduct heat. It can be a perfect option for restoring sensitive teeth.
    • Retention: Composite forms a chemical bond with the enamel that provides long-term stability.

    Question About Composite Fillings

    Process of Composite Fillings in Troy, MI

    The best part about getting your teeth restored with composite fillings is that it takes a single visit. During your appointment, our dentist will examine your damaged teeth and may also take dental X-rays. We will then administer a local anesthetic to minimize pain or sensitivity.

    Once the tooth is numb, we will remove the decayed portion and smoothen the rough edges. We will then apply an acidic gel and, later, a dental adhesive to promote the bonding between the tooth and composite resin.

    After tooth preparation, we will place the filling material and mold it to restore your tooth. The final steps involve curing the material and polishing it for a glossy, smooth finish.
