At Dental Arcade, we prioritize your dental health, and are happy to offer composite dental fillings – an advanced and aesthetically pleasing solution for treating cavities and restoring the natural appearance of your teeth. 

When Composite Dental Fillings Are Needed

Composite fillings are recommended in various situations, including:

  • Cavity Treatment: When tooth decay is detected, composite fillings provide a durable and tooth-colored solution for restoring the affected tooth.
  • Cosmetic Enhancements: Besides treating cavities, composite fillings are utilized for cosmetic purposes, such as reshaping teeth or filling in gaps and cracks.
  • Replacing Amalgam Fillings: Patients seeking a more natural-looking alternative to traditional amalgam fillings may opt for composite fillings.


The Composite Filling Procedure

The placement of a composite filling typically involves the following steps:

  1. Cavity Preparation: The decayed portion of the tooth is removed, and the tooth is prepared for the composite filling.
  2. Bonding Agent Application: A bonding agent is applied to the prepared tooth to enhance the adhesion of the composite material.
  3. Layered Composite Application: The tooth-colored composite material is applied in layers, shaped and cured with a special light at each step.
  4. Final Shaping and Polishing: Once the composite material is in place, the filling is shaped to match the natural contours of the tooth and polished for a smooth finish. 

Preventing Future Issues

As part of our commitment to comprehensive dental care, we emphasize preventive measures to avoid future cavities. This includes dietary recommendations, proper oral hygiene education and regular examinations to monitor the overall health of your teeth.
