Composite Fillings in Spring Valley
Supportive, Seamless Treatment for Cavities
A cavity—essentially, a hole in your tooth—can threaten the strength and integrity of your bite. The most common treatment for this involves filling in the cavity to restore the structure, and for nearly 200 years, this was done with metal amalgam fillings. Thanks to advances in modern dentistry, composite fillings made of a combination of ceramic, resin, and other materials have replaced metal as the more popular choice for fillings. At Dental Health 360˚, our experienced team can provide you with strong, long-lasting composite fillings in Spring Valley that blend seamlessly with your natural teeth.
What to Expect from a Composite Filling
When you come in for a filling, you can expect the procedure to be completed in a single visit. Your dentist will apply the filling in several layers, adding them one by one and allowing each to cure or harden before applying the next one. In order to keep out bacteria and moisture, the filling is sealed after the final layer.
If you need a filling in Spring Valley, you may want to consider the following advantages of composite over traditional metal:
- Improves the strength of the tooth
- Does not expand or contract when exposed to different temperatures
- Application process provides a tighter bond
- Can be tinted to match the surrounding tooth, making it unnoticeable
- Appropriate for use in situations where much of a tooth’s structure is damaged or lost
- Material is not harmful to gum tissue
