Composite Fillings in Port Coquitlam

Composite resin fillings are a safe option for restoring damaged teeth.

What Are Composite Fillings?

A composite filling is a tooth-colored plastic and glass mixture used to restore decayed, cracked or fractured teeth. The decayed or compromised portion of the tooth is removed and then filled with the composite filling. Composite fillings are also used for cosmetic enhancements of the smile by changing the color of the teeth or reshaping disfigured teeth.

The Reasons For Composite Fillings

You may need composite fillings (white fillings) because you have:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Too much space between two teeth
  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Decayed teeth
  • Worn teeth
  • A need to replace old silver fillings or amalgam fillings

The Benefits of Composite Fillings:

  • Matches tooth colour
  • Natural look and feel
  • Long-lasting
  • Can repair chips, cracks, gaps, and cavities

The Procedure

Placing a natural-looking white filling is similar to receiving a traditional amalgam filling. First, the tooth is frozen and cleaned. Then decay is removed from the tooth. Next, your dentist places the tooth coloured resin into your mouth. Finally, the resin will then be hardened with a special light and shaped to fit your mouth. Book an appointment now!
