Composite Dental Fillings

Silver fillings were considerably more prevalent in the 1970s and 1980s than they are now. People may now use composite fillings, which are designed to appear and feel like natural teeth, instead of having a mouth full of visible metal fillings, thanks to current technology. Composite fillings are made out of a glass and silica filler combination and are often utilized on the rear and front teeth.

Why Would You Require a Composite Filling?

A composite (tooth-colored) filling is used to treat a tooth that has decay, fissures, fractures, and other issues. The decaying or impacted area of the tooth will be removed, and a composite filling will be placed in its place.

Composite fillings are used for a variety of reasons such as for

  • Teeth that are chipped
  • Teeth that are worn out
  • Teeth that have decayed
  • For bridging the gap between two teeth
  • Teeth that are cracked or fractured

Composite Fillings vs. Amalgam Fillings: What's the Difference?

When offered the choice between amalgam and tooth-like composite fillings, most patients prefer composite fillings because of their natural look.

Composite fillings have a number of advantages, including:

  • Unlike typical silver fillings, composites have a natural appearance and feel.
  • Teeth that have been restored are less sensitive to heat and cold than teeth that have been amalgamated
  • Mercury is not present in composites.
  • They provide extra support by chemically bonding to the tooth structure.
  • Less tooth structure must be removed.

Earlier, dentistry sought to make tougher teeth by replacing broken or decaying teeth with extremely resistant and hard materials. However, by enabling further deterioration and fracture to occur, these stiff materials will lead to further degradation. Modern dentistry looks to nature for inspiration, always looking for materials that closely resemble the natural form and function of our teeth. This unique blend of art and science focuses on restoring the tooth's original function and internal structure. With composite fillings, the tooth is rebuilt in whole or in part using materials that react like a healthy tooth.
