Composite (Tooth Colored) Fillings

Smiling Patient with Dental Fillings

Tooth Fillings (tooth-colored) or composite fillings are a safe and attractive alternative to older silver amalgam fillings.  By matching  composite fillings with the natural color of your teeth, a dentist is able to provide you with white fillings that blend with the natural look of your teeth. The removal of amalgam can provide patients with a more cosmetically pleasing,  “silver-free” smile.

Composite fillings can be used on front and back teeth as well.  The esthetics of the composites are excellent whether used in the front or back teeth.  Composite fillings are also placed in a different fashion in the tooth as opposed to a silver dental filling. Composite fillings may be large or small depending on whether the decay or previous existing filling was large or small.  At times, a composite may also be used to strengthen or reinforce weakened tooth structure.  If the area is highly weakened, a crown may be needed to strengthen the tooth.

Composite fillings are made of a resin material. This type have become more popular over the years due to the more esthetic value of the composite rather than the amalgam/silver restorations.  Dr. Miller has been placing the tooth colored/composite fillings for many years as a general dentist service.  It is a very safe and durable material for the oral cavity.  Every attempt is made to select a shade of color that best will match the surrounding enamel color.  The look is much more natural than that of a “silver” filling.

Fillings are a typical procedure in a dentist office.  Most are completed in a dental office can be initiated and completed in the same appointment.  Typically, fillings are noted and completed as surfaces.  There may be one, two or three surface fillings. they may be as large as a five surface filling.
