Composite fillings are made from a mixture of powdered glass and acrylic resin. They are used to fix teeth that are chipped, cracked, decayed, worn-out, fractured, discolored and for closing gaps between two teeth. The greatest advantage of composite fillings is that unlike amalgam fillings, they are tooth-colored. Being tooth-colored, composite fillings blend in really well with the surrounding teeth and look natural. As a result, they have become a popular choice among people looking for cosmetic enhancements.
Composite fillings are easy to place and their placement is usually completed in a single appointment. If the affected tooth has any decay or cavity, it will be carefully removed and the tooth surface will be disinfected using antimicrobials and disinfecting solutions. The tooth's surface will then be etched and prepared to receive the filling. The composite filling will then be prepared from a mixture of powdered glass and acrylic resin and will be carefully placed in layers. Each layer is shaped with great precision and then hardened using a special blue light. Finally, the tooth will be polished to restore it to its natural shape and function.
