    What Are Composite Fillings Used For

    Composite resin is a tooth-colored dental material made from a mixture of liquid resin and finely ground glass particles. Due to its aesthetic appearance and long-term durability, it is a preferred choice of material for dental restorations. At our Charlotte, NC, clinic, we offer composite fillings to restore:

    • Chipped teeth: Small tooth chips, especially on the front teeth, can impact your smile, but we can restore them with composite resin.
    • Cracked or broken teeth: This treatment can address minor tooth cracks or fractures that occur due to strong biting forces or injury.
    • Cavities: Composite serves as a natural-looking and resilient alternative to traditional silver fillings for the restoration of tooth cavities.
    • Gaps between teeth: With this technique, we can fill minor spaces between teeth and enhance the look of your smile.
    • Uneven teeth: If one or more of your teeth are small-sized or have an odd shape, we can adjust their contours with composite resin.

    Questions About Composite Fillings?

    Benefits of Composite Fillings

    In the past years, metal fillings or amalgam was the preferred dental material for fillings. Despite its durability, it had certain drawbacks. Unlike metal restorations, our composite fillings in Charlotte, NC, blend perfectly with the natural shade of your teeth.

    These fillings offer the dual benefits of restoring your teeth and enhancing their overall appearance. We select the shade of resin that resembles the closest to your natural teeth, ensuring a realistic outcome.

    Unlike silver fillings, composite resin has thermal resistance, so it reduces the risk of tooth sensitivity. You can easily enjoy your favorite drinks and foods without experiencing any discomfort.

    Process of Composite Fillings in Charlotte, NC

    The treatment procedure is very simple and comfortable, so you can relax during your dental appointment. To start the treatment, first, we will inject a local anesthetic near the damaged or decayed tooth. This is done to avoid pain or discomfort during tooth preparation.

    Composite fillings require minimal preparation, so we will only remove the rough or damaged portion of the tooth. After this step, we will apply an acidic gel to the tooth surface and rinse after a few seconds. It roughens the tooth surface for proper adherence with the filling.

    Once tooth preparation is complete, we will place composite resin and sculpt it to recreate the natural contours of your tooth. We’ll harden the filling using a curing light and polish it for a smooth finish. Within an hour, you will be all set to show off your vibrant smile!

    So far so good! I have had two appointments here so far. The office is super clean & well put together. All the staff is super kind and caring. The dentist took time explaining everything to me & so did the office people. I definitely plan to continue coming back for my routine cleanings & a couple more fillings.

    They did really good job. Definitely recommended. I didn’t have to wait much and everything was on time. Even I had some additional work to be done and they adjusted it during the same visit and saved my time for another visit.
