Composite fillings replace temporary fillings and are permanently attached to teeth. These teeth fillings are performed in order to protect and enhance teeth aesthetically.For those in the Glendale area, our dentists are waiting to assist you with your composite filling treatment needs at our Glendale dental practice.
What is a composite filling?
A composite filling is a plastic and glass mixture that is placed over decaying and damaged teeth in order to restore them to their previous functionality and aesthetic look. In fact, composite fillings can be used to reshape disfigured teeth that are otherwise healthy and functional.
When dental clinics place composite fillings in their patients’ mouths, they do so through layers. As one layer hardens via a specialized light, another layer is added. Once finished, the dentist will shape the individual tooth to mimic the original tooth or the nearby teeth for the most natural look.
What are the advantages of composite fillings?
Composite fillings have a number of advantages. When Dental Solutions dentists talk about the advantages of composite fillings they usually do so because of the aesthetic advantages.
Composite fillings can be blended to match the color of the actual tooth from the patient. Unlike other treatments, a composite filling often looks identical to the former tooth and others typically do not notice the difference (depending on tooth placement in the mouth).
