    Composite Fillings

    Are Composite Fillings Right for Me

    Composite is an aesthetic dental material containing a mixture of liquid resin and finely ground glass particles. Due to its resemblance to the natural shade and texture of teeth, it is an ideal material for the restoration of damaged or decayed teeth. At our dental facility, we offer various shades of composite fillings in Tomball, TX, to restore:

    • Grossly carious teeth
    • Broken or fractured teeth
    • Chipped teeth
    • Small gaps between teeth
    • Root-canal-treated teeth
    • Teeth with old metal fillings

    Our dental practitioners will evaluate the condition of your teeth to determine whether you’re a suitable candidate for this treatment. If your teeth are too damaged to be repaired with fillings alone, we may suggest other measures such as dental crowns, inlays/onlays, or replacement with bridges.

    Benefits of Composite Fillings

    Our Tomball, TX, practice offers high-quality composite fillings for the restoration of teeth. They offer several benefits, including:

    • Aesthetics: Composite resin closely resembles the color of your natural teeth, providing exceptional aesthetics.
    • Durable: With proper maintenance, these restorations can last for up to 7 years.
    • Versatility: These fillings can be used to restore front and back teeth due to their aesthetic appeal and resilience.
    • Adherence: Unlike metal fillings, composite forms a chemical bond with the tooth structure and has better retention.
    • No health risks: Composite resin does not contain any toxic materials that may harm your oral health.

    Question About Composite Fillings?

    Process of Composite Fillings at Our Facility

    The procedure starts with a comprehensive examination of your teeth. Our team may also take dental X-rays to identify areas that require restoration. Next, we will use a shade guide to select a shade of composite that matches the closest to the natural color of your teeth. This helps us ensure that the filling material blends seamlessly with your smile.

    We will then remove the decayed or damaged part of the tooth surface. Unlike metal fillings, composite restorations do not require detailed shaping and take much less preparation time. This step is followed by the application of an acidic gel and then an adhesive that facilitates the bonding between the composite filling and the tooth surface.

    After tooth preparation, we will place the filling material and sculpt it to recreate the natural contours of your teeth. Our team will use a special blue light to harden the composite filling. Finally, we will perform some minor adjustments and polish the surface to restore the luminous appearance of your teeth.
