Austin Composite Fillings
Comprehensive Cosmetic Treatment
If decay has greatly damaged your tooth or you simply want to improve the look and feel of your teeth, composite fillings are an excellent treatment option. Since composite fillings are tooth-colored, it’s easy to match the color of your teeth, making it more aesthetically suited for use in visible areas of the mouth. We may also recommend composite fillings in the early stages of infections in order to prevent further damage and/or loss of teeth.
What Is a Composite Resin?
Composite resin is a tooth-colored material that bonds to the surface of your teeth and fills a hole or cavity. Since the material of composite resin is extremely durable, patients can eat, drink, and speak just as they would prior to the procedure.
Other advantages of composite resin fillings include:
- Less drilling required
- Hardens within a few seconds
- Reduces tooth sensitivity
- Easily repairable
- Can be used to replace old amalgam fillings
How Are Composite Fillings Placed?
We can typically perform a composite filling in just one office appointment. To start the procedure, our dentist will first numb the area and remove any bacteria. After, we’ll thoroughly and deeply clean the space to prepare for placement. The composite filling will then be accurately shaped, polished, and placed to restore your tooth to its original function.
