Composite Fillings For A More Attractive & Healthy Smile
At Gifford Family Dentistry in Portland, we’re proud to provide our patients with composite fillings to help correct a variety of dental issues including cavities, chips, and cracks.
How are composite fillings applied?
Placing a composite filling is a generally quick and straightforward procedure. After we’ve numbed the area with anesthetic, we’ll remove the decay, clear away any debris, and gradually build up the tooth-matching composite material. We’ll make any necessary fit adjustments and use a UV light to cure the filling in place.
What benefits do composite fillings provide?
Composite fillings can provide many benefits, including creating an aesthetically pleasing look that blends in seamlessly with natural teeth. They also cause less tooth sensitivity than traditional fillings due to their ability to seal out bacteria and debris, and they can also help preserve more of your natural tooth structure when compared to traditional amalgam (silver) fillings.
Who is an ideal candidate for these fillings?
Composite fillings may be suitable for anyone who has cavities, chips, or cracks in their teeth. If you are looking for a safe and effective way to repair minor dental issues, composite fillings may be right for you!
