Composite Tooth Fillings in Paramus
Stable & Virtually Invisible Cavity Fillings
If a tooth has developed a cavity or suffered damage due to decay, a filling is often needed to restore strength and prevent further damage. For nearly two centuries, metal amalgam fillings were the accepted standard. But modern composite fillings, such as those offered by Dental Health 360°, have become an increasingly popular choice. Using a combination of resin, ceramic, and other minerals, one of our dentists will create a filling that is both beautiful and long-lasting.
Composite fillings offer a number of advantages over traditional metal fillings, including:
- Composites increase the strength of your tooth
- Superior bonding gives them a tight fit
- They remain stable in size as the temperature changes
- There are no substances that can harm gum tissue
- A number of tints are available to match your surrounding teeth and make the filling unnoticeable to others
- They can be used even in larger cavities or traumas where much of a tooth’s structure has been lost
How a Composite Filling Works
A composite or “white filling” is applied in several layers, much like tooth bonding for cracked or chipped teeth. Your dentist will add layers one at a time and allow each one to harden in between. The final layer is sealed to keep out moisture and bacteria. The entire procedure can be completed in a single visit and almost never requires additional tooth material to be removed before proceeding. The result is a tooth that has full function and structural integrity the moment you leave our fully equipped treatment center.
