Composite fillings, also known as composite dental fillings are a very common dental restoration procedure used to reinforce chipped, cracked or teeth affected by cavities. Composite fillings are often regarded as being reliable, durable and aesthetically pleasing, making them the perfect choice for dentists and patients alike. Composite fillings for teeth are used in order to restore the function and integrity of just about any tooth affected by decay or trauma.
Composite fillings are recommended for patients with chipped or cracked teeth or patients with cavities, especially if the decayed tooth is visible.
Some patients may require root canal treatment before the procedure can begin, depending on the state of their tooth roots. In some cases other dental restoration techniques such as inlays/onlays or crowns may be applied, if the tooth is badly affected by decay.
Patients are often required to have a set of Dental X-rays before the procedure can begin. The x-rays are done to check the state of the tooth’s root and in order to ensure that the tooth is not cracked.
The composite tooth fillings procedure begins with the dentist administering local anaesthesia to the patient. A syringe is used to inject anaesthesia in the gum area surrounding the affected tooth. Next, the decayed parts of the tooth are removed, ensuring that there is no chance of infection after the filling has been applied. Once the tooth is clean, the composite filling is placed and hardened. The dentist will spend some time touching up the composite dental filling in order to ensure good functionality and a proper fit. The dentist will also take some time to match the composite filling colour to the patient’s natural teeth. The last step is polishing the new tooth until the filling becomes barely visible.
