What is composite filling?

Composite filling is a tooth-colored, putty-like substance that is used to repair teeth that have been damaged by decay, or are cracked, chipped or fractured. This durable material is comprised of crushed quartz blended with a resin material, that when hardened can restore function and strength of the teeth. The unique chemical bond reduces the risk of fracture and can last for years. Its natural color and translucency allow the composite to blend easily with your natural teeth – no one will know that it’s there!

Why Choose a Composite Filling?

Petaluma Family Dentistry recommends composite filling material for a wide variety of reasons.

The material itself is incredibly durable
It reduces the risk of tooth fracture and will last you years to come.
It not only repairs teeth damaged by decay, but fixes chips, fractures and gaps as well.
It blends with your natural teeth, making it a more aesthetically pleasing option than traditional metal fillings.
Placing Composite Material

A composite filling is completed in a single visit. Dr. Navid will remove any decay or old fillings, and clean the area prior to placement.

She then places, shapes and polishes the material, assuring the best fit. Your composite filling is now bonded to the tooth, meaning you will not experience filling leaks and will have a lesser chance of the tooth cracking.
